Our Volunteers

Meet our army of brave campaign volunteers

Passionate volunteers directly impact our ability to fund T1D research

JDRF was created – and still led – by people with a personal connection to type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our Campaign Volunteers includes a team of community and business leaders who are working in partnership with JDRF to change the lives of all Canadians living with T1D.
