Help paint a better future for type 1 diabetes research by colouring your hair blue this year! Register NOW to start fundraising.

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.
