Mission Statement

JDRF'S mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Description

JDRF is the world's largest charitable funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes research. JDRF was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with juvenile diabetes - a disease which strikes suddenly, making those affected insulin dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. JDRF has more than 100 chapters, branches and affiliates worldwide, which have helped to raise more than $1 billion for diabetes research.

JDRF hosts various events throughout the year to raise money to fund research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. JDRF has two main events, one in the spring known as the Promise Gala and the Walk to Cure Diabetes is in the fall.

Through our partnerships with volunteers, families and businesses, JDRF is able to help make their dream for a cure a reality.
