By signing up for the Blue Army Aqua Challenge, you could help change the lives of more than 120,000 Australians who live with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Your support will allow JDRF to fund the most promising research to defeat T1D. JDRF is the world’s largest funder of type 1 diabetes research and has been involved in every major research breakthrough over the past 45 years. JDRF-funded research continues to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs for people with type 1 diabetes, dramatically improving the lives of those living with the disease through new treatments, prevention therapies, and by continually pursuing our ultimate goal for a cure.
