About This Activity

PURPOSE: The sole purpose of this event

is to generate awareness and support for

juvenile diabetes. JDRF is the leading

global organization funding type 1 diabetes

(T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to

progressively remove the impact of T1D

from people’s lives until we achieve a world

without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide

spectrum of partners and is the only

organization with the scientific resources,

regulatory influence, and a working plan to

better treat, prevent, and eventually cure

T1D. As the largest charitable supporter of

T1D research, JDRF is currently sponsoring

$530 million in scientific research in 17

countries. In 2012 alone, JDRF provided

more than $110 million to T1D research.

More than 80 percent of JDRF’s

expenditures directly support research and

research-related education. In 2012 Forbes

magazine named JDRF one of its five All-

Star charities, citing the organization’s

efficiency and effectiveness. - See more at:
