Did you know that you can raise money for this year’s Walk to Cure Diabetes through Facebook? Once you download the Walk to Cure Diabetes Facebook application, you’ll be able to spread the word and raise money to help reach your fundraising goal directly through Facebook!

Follow these simple instructions to download the Facebook application and start fundraising today!

  • Click on the “Fundraise with Facebook” button on the bottom right hand side of your Participant Center page. This will connect you directly to your Facebook account.
  • Facebook will prompt you to download the application. Select “Allow” to continue.
  • That’s it. You’ve downloaded the free Facebook application.

The Facebook application will allow you to:

  • Donate your profile picture to our JDRF Walk sneaker. This is a fun, impactful and easy way to remind all your friends on Facebook that you’re participating and raising money to help support JDRF.
  • Post a news feed to get the word out and make it easier than ever for your friends to support you with a donation. Your friends can click directly on the link in your status update and donate to your efforts!
  • Share your personal story on why you are walking through your news feed as well as with others participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes.
