Organise your own event

Organise an event and help us cure type 1 diabetes

If none of the activities we put on float your boat why don’t you organise your own fundraiser? You can get involved in whatever way suits you best and raise funds for type 1 diabetes research.

Why not invite your friends, family and colleagues to get involved? Soon you’ll find that as well as the extra support you receive, you’ll have a great time organising a fulfilling fundraising activity. And of course, you can always rely on JDRF to be with you every single step of the way.

Our fundraising guide will ensure that anybody is able to organise their own event. And our fundraising teams around the UK will be on hand to share their expertise too. Find more hints and ideas here.

Local media coverage is a great way to generate publicity for your fundraising event. It also helps to raise awareness of JDRF and type 1 diabetes in your area. So why not try and get some publicity for it? Click here to download our guide to spreading the word in your local area.
