On October 5 join JDRF, the largest non-governmental funder of type 1 diabetes research, for their annual Boston Walk to Cure Diabetes at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell. The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun-filled charity walk held in locations all around the world. The Walk raises funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). Participants, walking alone or in teams, raise money for JDRF.

The Walk is JDRF’s flagship fundraising program and is essential to JDRF’s ability to award research funding and act as a powerful advocate in the T1D community. Any walker can tell you that the Walk is fun, celebratory, and incredibly rewarding. And it’s an easy way to become part of the global movement to cure, treat, and prevent T1D.

More than 200 Walks are held every year in the United States, and dozens more take place internationally. More than 900,000 people participate each year. Since 1992, the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised more than $1 billion for T1D research!
