Our Story

Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults.

It affects more than 120,000 Australian families, and 7 people are diagnosed every day.

There is no way to prevent it, and, at present, no cure.

JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research.

Our team is walking with the #JDRFbluearmy to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

If you can, please DONATE NOW (here --->), and support our walk to change the lives of Australians living with T1D.

Thank you,

Vera & Robert
