JDRF One Walk is a fun, family-friendly event where dedicated walkers, volunteers and sponsors raise money to make living with T1D safer and healthier—until it is no longer a threat. As the largest T1D event in the world, it's also an amazing experience to be a part of.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune diseased that effects children and adults instantly, that has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. It can become hard to manage, and right now, there is no cure or ways to prevent it. Each year 40,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with T1D. And, less than one third of those with T1D are achieving target blood glucose levels.
Whether you have a direct connection to T1D or not, you will be welcomed with open arms at JDRF One Walk. And, you'll be a part of a dedicated community that is passionate about creating a world without T1D.
As the leading global organization funding T1D research, JDRF's mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. The money raised when you participate in the JDRF One walk, you are impacting lives by helping create change! Turn Type One into Type None.

In 1944, a small group of dedicated parents and volunteers in Los Angeles united to provide home and community-based services for their children with developmental disabilities when no services of this kind existed. Today, the organization they founded and nurtured is known as United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (UCPLA) and, after more than 70 years, we remain true to our mission of advancing the independence, productivity and full citizenship of individuals with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and other developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Since our founding, the UCPLA family has grown to include two subsidiary organizations that make our reach truly global. By adding UCP WORK, Inc. to our family in 2001, UCPLA’s services expanded into Santa Barbara County. Then with the addition of UCP Wheels for Humanity in 2007, UCPLA’s impact was spread to more than 70 countries worldwide.
Today, UCPLA is the largest nonprofit provider of direct-care services for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Southern California. Our 40 programs and service sites span four counties and include adult day activity and learning centers; adult day behavioral programs; affordable and accessible apartments; community living services; group homes with full activities and nursing staff; family groups; parent support groups and resources; advocacy; and the Respitality program.
