Does it cost anything to join the JDRF One Ride?
There is no fee to join JDRF One Ride but we encourage all participants to reach the $500 fundraising target – either by personal donation or by seeking donations from family, friends, and colleagues. Remember you can also seek matched giving from your corporate organization – contact us to learn more. The more money we raise, the more money we can contribute towards type 1 diabetes research.
