JDRF One Walk



JDRF One Walk is the world’s biggest type 1 diabetes (T1D) fundraising event.

Each year, JDRF walks around the globe bringing together around 1 million people to raise over $85 million for life-changing T1D research.

This year, JDRF One Walk Melbourne is being held on 19th of November at Alexandra Gardens with a special ambassador – Sir Ian ‘Beefy’ Botham. Ian is a former England cricket captain and his daughter lives with type 1 diabetes.

He will be joining our community at selected Walks across Australia (including Melbourne) to hit type 1 for six!

The JDRF One Walk is a fun, family–friendly event gives people with T1D—and their friends, family and co–workers—the opportunity to raise money for life-changing T1D research.

There are more than 120,000 Australians living with T1D, an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin, a hormone that turns food into energy. T1D strikes both children and adults suddenly. It is not caused by diet or lifestyle. People with T1D require constant blood glucose testing through painful finger pricks, and a constant supply of insulin by injection or pump, just to stay alive.

Throughout the day, you can enjoy the following activities:

Melbourne Children’s activities such as colouring in and face painting
Melbourne Sporting activities suitable for kids and young adults
Melbourne JDRF research information shared in the JDRF Marquee
Melbourne Trade stands with information from medical device companies and
diabetes related information
Melbourne T-shirt competition and other games such as tug-o-war
Melbourne Live music throughout the day
Melbourne Onsite food trucks
