JDRF One Walk

JDRF One Walk is the world’s biggest type 1 diabetes (T1D) fundraising event. Each year, JDRF Walks around the globe bringing together around a million people to raise over $85 million for life-changing T1D research. This success is only possible because of the support, commitment and strength of our community.

You can make a powerful impact by joining the global leader in T1D research for a fun, family day out with a shared goal.

Walk with us, and help turn type one into type none.

Why Walk?

JDRF is here for the millions of children, adults and families challenged by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this chronic, life-threatening disease strengthens ours to end it.

T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone that turns food into energy. The disease strikes both children and adults suddenly and is not caused by diet or lifestyle. T1D requires constant blood-glucose testing through painful finger pricks, and a constant supply of insulin by injection or pump, just to stay alive.

JDRF is the largest non-government funder of T1D research. We are the right team to drive life-changing breakthroughs to better treat and, one day, prevent and cure T1D. But we can't do it without you.

By joining a JDRF Walk, your fundraising means that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research.

Together, we can walk to the finish. And turn type one into type none.

Congratulations to ‘Tom’s T-Cats’ and ‘Team Critto’ who were among the highest fundraising teams at the 2015 JDRF One Walk in Sydney.

Lorraine from Tom’s T-Cats says, “Our son Tom was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007, when we were living in Texas. We got involved with JDRF almost straight away, and attended our first JDRF One Walk with a team of 14 people, raising $13,000.”

“When we moved back to Australia, we kept inviting our friends, family, and colleagues to join us to support Tom at JDRF One Walk. Our team grew every year, and 2014 was the largest team we’ve ever had in Australia with 101 team members. Overall, we’ve raised $115,000 in the past eight years.”

Julie from Team Critto talks about their motivation for taking part in the Walk, and how they achieve their fantastic fundraising results: “The main reason we participate in the walk is to ultimately help find a cure for type 1 diabetes, so our son Sam and thousands of other Australians can live a normal life, free from finger pricks, insulin injections and carb counting. The Walk fundraiser gives Team Critto an opportunity to collectively raise funds through various methods, including our main event "Team Critto's Annual Trivia Night" where we can raise anywhere between $8,000-$10,000. Throughout the year we also host various themed raffles, Bunnings and Masters BBQs and collect general donations from family and friends. The Sydney One Walk gives our team the chance to catch up with our supporters, meet other type 1 families, have fun and learn from the various diabetes suppliers that have stalls set up on site. Team Critto is looking forward to the 2016 Walk.”

Congratulations to the Walkers of Merrett who were one of our highest fundraising VIC teams in 2015, and who have been supporting JDRF for over ten years!

Julie Merrett says, “We are helping JDRF to find a cure for type 1 diabetes — to give Christian and Noah a normal, healthy life, and to prevent their brother Joshua from developing this disease. There is currently no cure for T1D, but we have faith there will be one, and soon. Thank you for helping us.”

Congratulations to the Hungry Hungry Hypo’s, another of our top fundraising teams in 2015!

“Our daughter Tarah is the reason we are so passionate about raising funds for JDRF, and the reason we have started the Hungry, Hungry Hypo's.

We aim to build awareness of type 1 diabetes and to raise funds for medical research.

It’s extremely painful to see your child deal with such a serious disease. Our wish and dream is that our daughter will see a cure to this life-threatening disease in her lifetime, and as a family we have made it our mission to do everything we can to help find a cure for our daughter and friends that live with T1D. We are hoping a cure will be found soon, but research can’t be done without funding”.

Congratulations to the Jeffress Jelly Babies, who were the highest fundraising team at the 2015 JDRF One Walk in Canberra.

The Jeffress family says, “On the 13th of February last year, our 1 year old daughter Mia was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It was the day our worst fear was realised...to have a second child diagnosed with this horrible chronic condition was just devastating.

One day last year, our son Ethan woke up in the morning and came racing in to me to say, "Mummy, I had the best dream...I dreamt that Mia and I didn't have diabetes anymore!"

Wouldn't it be great if we could make his dream come true?

If you are able to, please consider making a donation, of any size, to JDRF”.
