Every day, 40 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D). But they are not alone. Kids across the country are coming together to help put an end to T1D.

Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. JDRF is the leading global organization funding research that will one day create a world without T1D. By joining JDRF Kids Walk, not only can your students make a difference for those living with T1D, but it’s fun and easy for everyone involved!
