Community

Type 1 Diabetes affects people at every stage of life. Whatever your questions or needs, JDRF staff and volunteers are committed to helping you life your best life with T1D.

Visit the Event Calendar to connect with the local community and the Life with T1D section for free toolkits, articles, information, and online groups for people of all ages and stages of life with T1D.

Often, our local community shows support for JDRF by hosting a sneaker sale campaign.  Below is a list of our current sneaker sale and corporate campaigns.  Please patronize these community partners and thank them for help us turn type ONE into type NONE.

Current Corporate Events

The Pharmacy Counter Sneaker Sale – Stop by The Pharmacy Counter for all your prescription needs AND buy a paper sneaker to support JDRF!  Don’t forget to say “thanks” to the staff for supporting JDRF.  It is supporters like The Pharmacy Counter,  that will help us turn Type ONE into Type NONE.

Advance Auto Parts – If you are in the store, August 21 thru October 4, purchase a paper sneaker during their annual campaign.  Each year Advance Auto Parts supports JDRF with the sneaker sale.  Thank them for helping us find a cure. Click HERE to find a location near you.

Schlotzkys - From September 1 to 28, Schlotzsky’s is holding a give-and-get campaign in all of its 350 locations. When customers make a $1 donation to JDRF, they’ll receive a $1 coupon good on their next visit to the popular restaurant chain. What could be better? On Tuesday, September 9, Schlotzsky’s will also donate 15 percent of all sales made between 5 and 8 p.m.to JDRF. Schlotzsky’s has selected JDRF as its national charitable partner and, since 2012, has raised more than $250,000 for research that will help us create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
