Rockin’ for Research benefiting JDRF

Over the last 18 years, the Rockin’ for Research Gala has raised a staggering $15 million.

This incredible ongoing success is due to the extraordinary support of many dedicated volunteers, committed sponsors, generous donors and passionate guests, all united by the same goal  – helping JDRF accelerate the discovery, development, and delivery of cutting edge advances to cure, better treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Rockin’ for Research is well-known as one of Vancouver’s best and most vibrant galas, and this year’s event will be another glamorous one-of-a-kind experience.
