Walk Talk: Tips for Submitting Donations

August 26, 2011

Walk day is known for being one of the best family-friendly events around. With entertainment, refreshments, music, and more, you know you will have a great time while supporting people living with type 1 diabetes.

Even more important than showing up on Walk day is what you are able to contribute and raise for diabetes research. This not only shows your loved one and the community that you support them; it really makes an impact in the world of research. The people who help decide where to focus JDRF’s research funding have a direct connection to type 1 diabetes. JDRF’s research prioritization process not only includes leading scientists, but also individuals who either have type 1 diabetes or have family members with type 1 diabetes. This process ensures that donations are used to fund the most promising science that will accelerate progress toward new treatments, and eventually a cure.

To achieve these amazing results, we need your help. There is still time to raise those important dollars! Visit your Participant Center for some great tips and steps for success!

Online Fundraising Tips of the Week

Keep your thermometer rising with cash & check donations!

New this year! You can now enter cash or check donations into your Participant Center using the link on the right side of the Progress tab to make your fundraising thermometer reflect all money you have raised, even if you haven’t turned it in to JDRF yet. These donations will immediately appear on your fundraising thermometer and reflect your real-time results. When entering donations, please enter as much information about the donor as possible (including their address). Once donations appear on your thermometer, there is no need to wait until Walk Day to turn them in. Please send donations to the chapter office in advance of the Walk and include the name of your Walk Team and the Walker to credit. Our address is: 9400 N. Central Expressway, Suite 1201 – Dallas, TX 75231.
