Each year, the annual One Night Signature Gala brings people together to celebrate the tenacity and courage displayed by the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community, while raising critical funds for T1D research.
Although we couldn’t be together in person on April 24th as we had originally planned - we've created an exciting lineup of digital activities to still come together as a community to honor our One Night Signature Gala and continue the hard work that we've been doing to treat, prevent and cure T1D.
Join us as we recognize our 2020 Gala Honorees, Daniel and Colleen Aversano, and honor JDRF’s 50 years of progress for our first ever Virtual Gala campaign! Rally behind our T1D community, join us for a toast and maybe even hear from a special guest or two - all from the comfort of your living room!
ABOUT JDRF & TYPE 1 DIABETES (T1D)
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
Vision: A world without type 1 diabetes
Mission: Improving lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications
T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults—and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
