What is Rock the Cure

Rock the Cure (RTC) began in 2006 as a dream of some young professionals in Atlanta wanting to raise money to cure Type 1 diabetes but also have fun while doing it. This group felt "overlooked" in the current fundraising activities taking place on behalf of JDRF. The Gala reaches an older demographic and the Walk tends to attract corporate teams and families. Wanting to find a niche to educate and involve this proactive age group, a party at SweetWater Brewery seemed to be the answer.

Rock the Cure has grown over the years and become a mainstay at SweetWater, drawing the biggest crowds they have seen from a third-party event. Completing its 10th year in 2016, Rock the Cure continues to grow and is being replicated throughout the country at other JDRF chapters.

Over the past 11 years, RTC has raised over $875,000 towards a cure for type 1 diabetes and Rock the Cure will continue on until we can find that cure. Come out and raise a glass to finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. For our 12th year we are hoping to raise $1,000,000 since the inception of the event for T1D research! We look forward to seeing you all in the near future.
