A Cure is the most special part of the Gala, allowing individuals to
make a personal gift directly toward funding JDRF research. A wide
range of giving opportunities will be offered in the ballroom during our
program. When you hear the level at which you wish to make a
contribution, raise your bid card until your bid number is called. Our
goal is to have 100% giving from our guests, allowing JDRF to do the
greatest good for the largest number of people in the shortest amount of
time. So please, give generously at whatever level you are able.
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
