What is the Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF?

The Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF is the largest fundraising event in Canada to support type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

While we may not be together in person this year, we will still come together to walk the distance for the 300,000 Canadians living with T1D. On June 13th, join walkers in a brand new immersive and interactive experience filled with activities, entertainment and the celebration of uniting virtually to change the future of T1D..  Discover the Walk grounds as if you were physically there, connect with friends new and old, engage with our partners and celebrate with us during the main show. 

This year, as we commemorate the centenary of the discovery of insulin, we are challenging participants to each walk 100km to mark this milestone and to raise funds  for T1D research that will move us beyond insulin, accelerating toward a cure. It doesn’t matter where you walk. Just that you register. 

So on June 13th, join us at our online finish line where we will all come together from the comfort of our own homes to make a difference in the lives of those living with T1D.

Help change lives

More than 300,000 children, teens and adults live with T1D in Canada, and approximately 50 people are still diagnosed every day. With no known cause and no cure, there is no way to prevent this disease, and many are at risk of complications. Let's bring that number to zero.
