Host a Walk

Hosting a Walk

How do I bring JDRF One Walk to my local area?

You can host your own JDRF One Walk in your local area with help and support from JDRF. If you would like to host a Walk in your local community (or be part of a hosting committee) please call us on 1300 363 126 or email and a JDRF team member will contact you to discuss the details. We are here to help you every step of the way!


Can I use my Walk login details from last year?

JDRF One Walk 2018 is now housed on a new fundraising system, so you will need to create a new login and fundraising page. We hope you find the process just as easy, and love the enhanced functionality the new platform can offer our wonderful fundraisers.

How can I create or join a JDRF One Walk team?

In the third step of the registration process, you can “Create” or “Join” a team. You can either skip over this question, create your own team, or find and join an existing team.


How can I fundraise?

There’s so many different ways! Most people start by sharing their personal page on social media or via email – but don’t forget to personalise your page first! You can also try more creative methods, and we have some fun ideas, resources, templates and tips online. See them here.

Where does the fundraising money go?

Each year, JDRF One Walk brings together hundreds of thousands of people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). These Walks allow JDRF to fund life-changing research, helping to lessen the everyday burden of T1D and, ultimately, create a world where it no longer exists—a world where Type One has become Type None. Find out more about JDRF’s global type 1 diabetes research program.

Are donations tax deductible? 

Yes,  all donations over $2 in value are tax deductible.

Event Day

Does it cost anything to do the Walk?

There is no fee to attend the Walk – we ask all Walkers to fundraise or make a donation. Some Walks do ask for a gold coin donation for some of the rides and activities on the day. We encourage all Walkers to contribute in some way – there’d be nothing to celebrate if no money was raised! The more money we raise, the more money we can contribute towards type 1 diabetes research.

Will there be food at the event?

Catering options vary at each Walk.

What happens if it rains on the day of the Walk?

Walks will not be cancelled due to rain, so we encourage you to still attend – just bring your wet weather gear!

Can I bring my dog / bicycle / BBQ?

Bicycles are not permitted along Walk routes for safety reasons. Dogs and BBQs may be permitted at some Walk locations. Please check your local Walk’s location page to find out. Alternatively, you could check with your local council.
