TELUS Walk for the Cure: Quick Facts

For eight consecutive years we’ve been proud to serve as the title sponsor of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) signature, nation-wide fundraising event, the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes.

The Walk raises money for JDRF to continue funding critical research to find a cure for diabetes and its complications. The research they fund helps develop advanced treatments to improve the lives of people living with this disease.

Until a cure is found, we are determined to use the power of our technology and expertise to help deliver better diabetes management. We believe a cure will be found within our lifetime if we work together.

Did you know that more than 300,000 Canadians in our communities live with type 1 diabetes? That number might sound daunting, but with help from our enthusiastic volunteers and participants, the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes presents its own set of impressive statistics!
