How do you participate in the Walk?

There are more than 65 walks across the country each year. Just choose a walk near you and register. If you can’t attend, consider participating in a Virtual Walk. Either way, you can create a team and invite others to join, join an existing team, or participate as an individual. Once you register, set a goal and start fundraising.

 

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Walk and we have seen some amazing research advancements in that time. Back in the early ‘90s, researchers had just discovered that tight glucose control reduced complications in type 1 diabetes. The insulin molecule was identified as a target of autoimmune response in people with type 1 diabetes. Since then, we have seen some incredible breakthroughs including the Edmonton Protocol (a method of implanting pancreatic islet cells for the treatment of type 1), the artificial pancreas, continuous glucose monitoring, and beta cell regeneration.

Join the Walk and help us continue to fund groundbreaking type 1 discoveries! Together we will find a cure, but we need your help to do it.
