Schlotzsky’s & JDRF

Schlotzsky’s is proud to be a national charitable partner with JDRF.

Founded in 1970, JDRF (formally Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is the world’s largest charitable funder of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, having raised more than $1.6 billion in research funds since its inception. T1D is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any age, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with T1D have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin injections multiple times or use a pump – each day, every day of their lives. 

“We were extremely selective when identifying a national charitable cause that our brand could support system wide. Our organization is happy to be working with JDRF to fund essential research toward type 1 diabetes,” said Kelly Roddy, president of Schlotzsky’s “This decision was more than an act of corporate philanthropy; this was the alignment of two organizations that are passionate about helping those with this disease. As a supporting partner, our goal is to raise $100,000 that will help efforts in finding better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes.”

Schlotzsky’s regularly hosts numerous opportunities to raise funds for JDRF both on a national and local level through in-store fundraisers, diabetes walks, galas, sneaker programs, and much more.
