Fundraising Rewards

We are so grateful for all you are doing to raise funds and awareness for T1D research. For those participants who raise $125 or more, we’d like to offer you the opportunity to select an e-gift card for your efforts.

If you’d prefer to put the mission of finding a cure for T1D first, you can donate your gift card back to JDRF and help us reduce our costs and direct more funds to research.
