Team JDRF to Cure Diabetes

Welcome to Team JDRF to Cure Diabetes!

Team JDRF to Cure Diabetes is a way for anyone and everyone to make a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes. Choose a Challenge Event, Community Event or Personal Page to take your fundraising to the next level.

Challenge Events

Team JDRF Challenge Events combine your passion for helping others with the inspiration to train and raise funds for JDRF. The best part is you can participate in any existing endurance event – ANYWHERE!

Run a marathon or half marathon and be part of JDRF’s effort to find a cure.

Living with type 1 diabetes can be like completing an endurance event…except it goes on day in, day out – the dietary restrictions, the multiple daily blood tests and the injections of insulin seem endless. With your support we can advance the research that will lead to better treatments, and eventually a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Join JDRF in your training and together we will cross not only the finish line, but also the finish line to a cure!
