The JDRF Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes, presented by Sun Life Financial, is a unique stationary biking event that brings together over 12,000 Canadians who are pedaling to raise $4.2 million to support critical type 1 diabetes (T1D) research projects.
“We’re challenging Canadians to go further to defeat diabetes, and help us raise funds that will accelerate the pace of research discoveries,” says Dave Prowten, President and CEO, JDRF Canada. “There are more than 300,000 Canadians living with T1D and the incidence is steadily increasing. We need to step up our fundraising efforts now to put an end to this disease – and we need your help to make that happen.”
JDRF is very proud to be teaming up once again with Sun Life Financial as the presenting sponsor for this event as they help raise awareness and funds for finding a cure to T1D.
The Revolution Ride has something for everyone – including team building, exercise, fun music, high-energy excitement, and the knowledge that you are contributing to a great cause. Whether you’re looking for a fun, team-oriented stationary ride or want to participate when and where you want (vRide), this event offers lots of ways to get involved and help us meet our fundraising goal.
“Sun Life is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the JDRF Revolution Ride and team up with riders from coast-to-coast as they challenge diabetes and make a lasting contribution for Canadians who live with the disease,” said Paul Joliat, Assistant Vice-President, Philanthropy & Sponsorships, Sun Life Financial. “At Sun Life, we are committed to helping raise awareness and funds for the prevention, care and research of diabetes. Our partnership with the JDRF in support of the Ride is a natural fit as we tackle this global issue together.”
