If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an army to defeat type 1 diabetes!

The JDRF Blue Army extends to more than 130,000 Australians battling with type 1 diabetes (T1D), their carers and the researchers, volunteers, donors, parliamentarians, scientists, and healthcare professionals working towards a world without T1D.

We're on a mission to defeat T1D and we'll keep fighting until we declare victory over this condition.

Enlist now by create your own fundraiser or supporting one of our existing events. Together, we can turn type one into type none!
