Volunteer Recognition Award Winners 2016

JDRF was founded in 1982 by the efforts of Australian volunteers and parents of children with type 1 diabetes hoping for a better future for their children. Today, we are still driven by the passion and dedication of our many volunteers who help us towards our mission to deliver a better life for people with type 1 diabetes, and one day, a cure.

We are so grateful for the support that all of our volunteers provide JDRF - the high number of nominations received this year reflects how highly regarded they are. The winners of our 2016 Volunteer Recognition Awards are listed below.
