On Sunday, June 12th in communities across Canada, people will come together because they share a similar goal – walking to demonstrate a desire to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Families, organizations and communities register, raise funds and celebrate together on Walk day with fun activities, refreshments and inspirational messaging.
The TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes provides individuals touched by T1D the opportunity to unite with others with a similar passion, and to raise critical funds for research.
Over 45,000 Canadians walk, share stories, and connect at approximately 70 sites across Canada and become one community with participants in six other countries!
In St. John’s, NL, the Walk will be held at Swilers Rugby Club, registration opens at noon or you can register online at www.jdrf.ca/walk.
