Were you a #TypeOnesie for World Diabetes Day?

Thousands of people across the country took part in #TypeOnesie in 2014 to raise awareness of World Diabetes Day and raise funds for JDRF

What is a #TypeOnesie?

#TypeOnesie was JDRF's campaign for World Diabetes Day 2014, which took place on 14 November. All you need to do to be a #TypeOnesie is wear a onesie – whether you’re at school or work – and join thousands of others across the country in raising awareness of type 1 diabetes and money for JDRF.

Here are the top #TypeOnesie fundraisers of 2014. Thank you to everybody who took part on the day, whether you raised £1 or £1,000.

Where your money goes

The money you raise will help to support our vital research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.

We fund a variety of research projects to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes, including smart insulins. Smart insulins are a new class of insulin that could be used to treat type 1 diabetes, keeping glucose control nearly perfect, with only one injection a day.
