Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF is the leader in setting the agenda for diabetes research worldwide, and is the largest charitable funder of and advocate for type 1 diabetes research.  The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Funds raised through the B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program will be directed by JDRF toward funding research to find a cure for diabetes and its complications and to develop transformative treatments that enable people with type 1 diabetes to live healthier, safer lives until that cure is found.  In addition, the funds will support JDRF’s local Outreach programs for individuals and families with a type 1 diabetes connection.  Together, we can deliver better treatments and eventually a cure.  Partnering with JDRF holds the promise of helping to bring about the day when type 1 diabetes does not exist.
