JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.

*If you wish to participate in the 5K AND the Walk, you must register for both events! You can register for the Walk to Cure Diabetes or get more information about the Walk at walk.jdrf.org.
