As the leading global type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and advocacy organization, JDRF has played a crucial role in nearly every major T1D breakthrough in history.

No organization does more to improve everyday life with T1D—from therapy development and access, to expanding research, advocacy, and community support. JDRF One Walk is the world’s largest fundraising and community-building event for the T1D community. By joining JDRF One Walk, you will help us create a movement to improve and change life with type 1 diabetes, advancing life-changing breakthroughs on the way to cures.

T1D is an autoimmune disease that is diagnosed in both children and adults and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant attention and action—including overnight. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D can still experience dangerously high or low blood sugar that can lead to complications and, in extreme cases, be life-threatening.
