If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an army to defeat T1D!

At the heart of everything we do at JDRF are the 130,000+ Australians who live with type 1 diabetes, and the eight children and adults who are newly diagnosed each day.

Our Blue Army extends to people like YOU - those who are in a battle with T1D every day and the families, carers, teachers and friends who fight on your behalf. That's not all: joining the ranks are the JDRF team, scientists, researchers, diabetes educators, nurses, parliamentarians, volunteers, corporate partners and donors who have accepted the mission to create a world without T1D. The Blue Army is a movement that exists to defeat T1D and we'll keep fighting until we can declare victory over this condition.

Can you join the Blue Army without a T1D connection? Yes, of course! We just need people who are driven to make a difference to the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes.

We are thankful for every one of you. With your support, we can continue to make vital progress towards a world without T1D.

By joining the #JDRFBlueArmy you can help JDRF get closer to our mission to cure, prevent, and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications. Read more about JDRF's work and the research we fund here.

Together, we want to see a world without T1D!
