The JDRF One Walk was held on Saturday, February 21st. It was an incredible day where the JDRF community came together to celebrate our fundraising success and the advancements JDRF is making toward turning Type One into Type None. But we aren’t done. We are going to ask you to keep asking and keep fundraising because there is far too much important and promising work to be done.
Over the next few weeks, our walkers, teams, and supporters will continue to fundraise to reach our goal of $1.6 million.
If you have donations to turn in, please mail them to the JDRF office at: 3001 Metro Dr, Ste 100, Bloomington, MN, 55425. Please include a note with walker name/team name and we will add them to your team total.
Walk prizes will be automatically ordered for those who qualify (unless you opt out) in 6 to 8 weeks. A prize catalog will be mailed to your home and you can then make your prize selection.

Save the date! The 2016 JDRF One Walk will be held on Saturday February 20, 2016 at Mall of America.
