Jump to Cure Diabetes with JDRF

There are many reasons why people jump out of a plane. Some people jump when they reach a milestone, some people jump to show their support of someone with type 1 diabetes, some jump as a team building activity and others jump to face their fear. Now you have the opportunity to Jump to Cure Diabetes with JDRF!

Imagine the feeling when you and your tandem instructor step out of the plane's door up to 14,000 feet above the ground and freefall for at 240km per hour before pulling the parachute cord and floating to the ground with views over the local area.

The Jump to Cure Diabetes is held at skydiving venues around Australia. Register today for this life-changing experience! If you require further information, please contact JDRF via jumpsupport@jdrf.org.au or call 1300 363 126.

Why Jump for JDRF?

Funds raised for the Jump to Cure Diabetes go towards supporting the world's best research into curing, treating and preventing type 1 diabetes. 

Melbourne-based Adam and Jess did the Jump to Cure Diabetes in 2015 for their young son Noah who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Jess says, "For me as a mother, Noah's diagnosis was truly devastating and heartbreaking. I may not be able to take away his T1D, but I will do everything possible to support him, and show him that he isn't alone."

Adam adds, "I just hope that a cure is not too far away as I don't want my little man to endure this for the rest of his life, so please help to support this great cause and register yourself, or find someone to jump for you".
