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

The Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF is the largest collective rally bringing together those affected by type 1 diabetes to unite, get loud and raise funds to accelerate the pace of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
 
It’s a fun, family friendly event where dedicated walkers, volunteers and sponsors raise money to make living with T1D safer and healthier, until we create a world without T1D. We welcome everyone to take part—whether you choose to walk on your own or with a family, company or school team. As the largest T1D event in Canada, this is more than just a Walk, it's an amazing experience filled with activities, entertainment and the celebration of coming together to change the future of type 1 diabetes forever. Because Walk participants are not defined by their disease, they are #MoreThanT1D.
 
As the leading global organization funding T1D research, JDRF's mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
 
By raising money and awareness, you'll help make a world without T1D a reality.

Help change lives

More than 300,000 children, teens and adults live with type 1 diabetes 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.
