Running for Deirdre, Miss Angela, Nick Jonas, and all the other T1-ers out there. If they can be strong and kick diabetes's butt everyday, I can run for a few hours. #burninup
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our 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 end T1D.
As successful as JDRF has been, there is a still a large gap between where we are now and what we need to deliver life-changing therapies in the future. JDRF funds more than $100 million in T1D research each year, and has $530 million currently at work in programs around the world. But it is not enough.
Team JDRF raises money that allows us to direct even more funding toward T1D research. Sign up for an event or start a campaign today and join us in turning Type One into Type None.
