Kids for a Cure is a way for youth, teens and young adults to help make a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D), while participating in an enjoyable community service team building activity.
Over 80% of fundraising dollars raised directly benefits diabetes research to support our mission to find a cure for T1D. Your students will know that their fundraising efforts are being used to fund the best possible research to prevent, better treat and cure T1D — turning Type One into TYPE NONE.
Thank you in advance for your support. JDRF staff would be happy to have the opportunity to partner with your local schools or youth organizations, and provide the materials and guidance needed to launch a successful campaign.
Please feel free to contact us any time at (517) 614-7600 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
