We welcome runners/walkers of all skill levels to sign up as an individual fundraiser or fundraising team to support 2024 and beyond programs for families impacted by diabetes. JDRF’s mission is Improving lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. Elbowbumpkid Inc’s mission is to provide families impacted with Type 1 Diabetes with the opportunity to thrive, learn and grow despite the diagnosis. Elbowbumpkid Inc raises critical funds that subsidize education events, local community events, and partnerships for local initiatives that support the T1D community. Elbowbumpkid Inc and JDRF work together to support families in CT & MA impacted by Type 1 Diabetes at every phase of their journey. All money raised will support programs in CT & MA for families.
