Colour your hair blue and support life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

T1D is a life-long autoimmune condition where the body is unable to produce its own insulin - which is what regulates your blood sugar. People with T1D need to monitor their blood sugar levels 24/7 and administer themselves insulin day and night.
By colouring your hair blue this year, you are helping us paint a better future for those living with the condition by supporting life-changing research aimed at finding a cure and improving lives until we do.

Plus, if you raise $500, you’ll receive a FREE JDRF Blue Army t-shirt and a Blue Hair dye pack.

The research YOU can support by going blue...

More on the incredible research you can support by going blue…

JDRF is the world’s leading funder of T1D research with a mission of creating a world without T1D and improving lives everyday until we do. Here are some of the projects JDRF are proud to have been supporting:

  • The continued rollout of the Type 1 Diabetes National Screening Pilot, to detect the risk of T1D in childhood before the point of critical illness and onset of symptoms.
  • A game-changing new method of islet transplantation which involves transplanting islet cells (insulin producing cells), into the body of someone living with T1D to enable their body to produce its own insulin.
  • The development of T1D vaccines, so that one day T1D can be prevented in every child and adult.

Help us continue to support research projects like these so we can unlock new breakthroughs and improve the quality of life of those living with T1D.
