The world’s biggest type 1 diabetes (T1D) fundraising event

Each year, JDRF One Walks around the globe bring 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, FREE family day out with a shared goal.

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

Why Walk?

JDRF is here for 120,000 Australians 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 One 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.
