Do-It-Yourself Fundraising & Local Events

Are you looking to set up an online fundraiser?

We have four ways for you to do it.

Join Team Diabetes

By joining Team Diabetes you can participate in an athletic event of your choice — a marathon or triathlon, for example — while helping to raise vital funds to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association.

Register as an individual, start a team, or join a team. You will get a personalized web page with powerful fundraising tools to help you spread the word to friends, family members, and others you want to have support your event.
