There is currently no cure for type 1 diabetes and children cannot outgrow it. Each year 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed with T1D. That’s 40 kids and 40 adults each day. There are many ways to get involved in the fight to find a cure and change the lives of all that live with this disease. There are walks and bike rides around the country that are both meaningful and rewarding for all the participants. There are school fundraising programs to help fund research to cure, treat and prevent T1D. These programs educate students about T1D and T2D, the importance of a healthy lifestyle and fundraising to make a difference in people’s lives. Between community events, challenge events and personal campaigns there is something for everyone and we will not stop until there is a cure!

jdrf-JDRF-is-the-leading-global-organization-funding-type-1-diabetes-(T1D)-research-ADThe Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), founded in 1970, is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes research. JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Its mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF’s goal is to improve the lives of all people affected by Type 1 diabetes by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing Type 1 diabetes. More than 80% of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research related-education.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s own immune system misguidedly attacks and destroys certain cells in the pancreas, an organ about the size of a hand that is located behind the lower part of the stomach. These cells–called beta cells–are contained, along with other types of cells, within small clusters in the pancreas called islets. Beta cells normally produce insulin, a chemical messenger that helps the body move sugar from food sources into cells throughout the body, which use it for fuel to stay alive. But when the beta cells are destroyed, no insulin can be produced, and sugar stays in the blood instead, where it can cause serious damage to all the organ systems of the body and starves cells of their normal energy source. For this reason, people with type 1 diabetes must routinely inject insulin in order to stay alive.
