Help create the blueprint for a world without type 1 diabetes

At JDRF, our mission is to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D), and your school can help us do it by GOING BLUE with us in 2024.

You can Go Blue any day of the year! Consider spreading T1D awareness before National Diabetes Week* in July or World Diabetes Day on November 14.

Another heartwarming way to Go Blue is by marking the diaversary of your student/s living with T1D (that's the meaningful anniversary of the day they were diagnosed!). 

So, what are you waiting for? Simply create your school page and update your fundraising page with the date you've decided to Go Blue once registered.

ways to go blue

Wear it blue

Whether it’s a blue hoodie, socks, shoelaces, or even a blue wig, beanie, or cap, your fashion statement can make a difference. 

Colour it blue

Get creative with blue hair chalk, temporary hair spray, and more! Add a splash of blue to your school by hanging blue banners or balloons.

Make it blue

Unleash your creative skills! Craft something blue and share it with others, for example blue awareness bracelets and custom t-shirts.

Bake it blue

Whip up some delicious blue cupcakes, slices, and cakes to raise awareness. Share them at a fete, disco, presentation or staff meeting.
