Thank you so much to everyone who supported the 46th Annual Promise Ball! We are continuously blown away by the support we receive from the community to help us fund breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. We hope everyone had as much fun as we did!
This year we were honored to recognize Heather and John Sargent and their daughter Schuyler as the 2018 Humanitarians of the Year for their outstanding commitment to the mission.
Since its inception, The Promise Ball has raised more than $75 million to fund breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Thanks to your support, we will continue to pioneer the efforts towards curing the disease once and for all.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
