Team JDRF, benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, is a way for anyone and everyone to make a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes. Whether it’s a walk, a bowl-a-thon, a lemonade stand, or whatever you dream up, Team JDRF pairs our families’ passions for the cure with grass-roots fundraising. Now JDRF brings you a handy toolkit to get inspired and get started. Here you will find ideas, best practices, printable materials…everything you need to be successful. We have also got a terrific online system, to make your fundraising even more effective, efficient, and FUN.
We all give to charities that matter to us, and we all give in different ways. Perhaps you have participated in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, or in a local JDRF Gala. These events raise millions of dollars every year to fund the best diabetes research in the world. But sometimes, it takes a village. Small local events can be great ways to bring communities together, and the power of even a few people working together is undeniable. Also, service clubs, youth groups, and other organizations look for community service projects every year; why not combine their efforts with a proven winner in efficiency and results—JDRF? Now, more than ever, we are at the threshold of advancements across all areas of diabetes research. We need the combined power of all JDRF events; every dollar makes a difference and no event is too small. Our cause is urgent; the call for action is now.
