Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Limited.
Who we are
Thank you for raising money for JDRF.
JDRF is the type 1 diabetes charity, improving lives until we find the cure.
We fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes. We provide information for children, adults and parents living with the condition, at all stages from diagnosis and beyond. We give a voice to people with type 1 diabetes and campaign for increased focus on, and funding for, research to find the cure.
From here you can make a donation to our work or set up a fundraising page for your event. You dont have to be a top athlete to take part in an event for JDRF. With some training and dedication, the sky is the limit. Find out more about the different types of event you can take part in at https://jdrf.org.uk/get-involved/fundraise/events/. When you complete your challenge you can feel doubly proud, knowing that your efforts have helped fund world class research into type 1 diabetes.
Why I support JDRF...
"I give as much as I can to JDRF as I feel that their research is powerful and potentially life-changing. I was inspired by the Celebrity Kilimanjaro climb, and I put myself through an intense training programme to attain the physical fitness and mental determination required to get me to the top! My sweet and courageous daughter Jenny was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the tender age of 10. My daughter is lucky - she has a supportive family and excellent medical care, but...this is not enough! I want to help find the cure that will transform the lives of many people around the world." Sally Anderton - Climb Kilimanjaro
"My daughter, now aged 10, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April 2008. I wanted to do something that would help with the valuable work that you are doing for children with type 1 diabetes and to show my appreciation for the advances in diabetes care from which Rachel is benefiting. I decided to do some fundraising by collecting sponsorship for completing the ‘Go Ape’ tree top course at Leeds castle. This was a challenge as the height was well out of my comfort zone but the generous sponsorship and encouragement from friends, family and acquaintances ensured that I made it round. I am delighted to enclose a total of £550. Our family is very grateful for the work that you do and Rachel loves her JDRF bear. With best wishes for continued breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes treatments and hopefully a cure in the future." Brenda Ladley - Goes Ape for JDRF
