JDRF Rockin’ for Research Gala 2021

Event Details


JDRF hosted its first virtual gala in 2020. Thanks to an incredible group of donors, sponsors, and supporters it saw huge success, raising over $700,000.

JDRF has held galas in Vancouver since 1999, in Victoria since 2004, and Kelowna since 2005 — a combined 53 years of events that have raised over $22M for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our galas incorporate a mixture of excitement and emotion, activity and entertainment, elegance and fun. But one thing is for certain: they are a great way for you to show your support for the T1D community and accelerate T1D research.

JDRF’s primary focus continues to be funding critical T1D research. We have been a part of every major scientific advancement in T1D research in the past 40 years, and with your help, we are moving towards a cure as quickly as possible. With this year marking 100 years since insulin was discovered, we are excited to look back and reminisce about some of these significant achievements.
