DYF DAY 2014: Apr 27, 2014


Looking for a way to support DYF programs?


Help DYF continue our goal to inspire courage, competence and confidence
in children, teens and families living with T1D!





DYF DAY is our largest fundraising initiative, comprised of two parts. Mini DYF DAYS are year-round, individually sponsored “Do-it-Yourself FUNraisers” to help lend support for the programs our community knows and loves. And on April 27th DYF will host our 3rd annual, Mega DYF DAY celebration, in honor and support of our community.

The best part is that you can help in ANY way that suits your busy schedule. You pick the way and day – your own day for DYF!

A Few Options:

  • Create an online fundraising page. (EASY!!) 
  • Host your own Mini DYF DAY! (A little creativity needed.)
    IDEAS: wine & cheese night, bake sale, concert, movie night, BBQ, spaghetti dinner, a party in honor of a “dia-birthday/diabetes anniversary,” a restaurant night out where you ask your favorite restaurant to donate a portion of the night’s sales. Sky’s the limit! *Be sure to let DYF know!
  • Ask a local business (or your own) to support DYF through sponsorship. (Go get ‘em!)


You can do one, all of those, or come up with your own idea – our families are creative! DYF DAY is about supporting DYF in any way you can. If you don’t have time to do a Mini DYF DAY, but do have time for an online fundraising page, great! If your company wants to sponsor DYF, awesome! Whatever way YOU can help is what DYF DAY is all about.

Sunday April 27th at Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek at 10AM

DYF will celebrate our amazing community with live music, delicious BBQ, counselor skit, face painting, scavenger hunt, diabetes expo and more! Our Mega DYF DAY celebration is a slice of camp complete with the community and our counselors doing what they do best — inspiring your family! Encourage your friends, family, teammates, classmates, co-workers and diabuddies to join you. We invite all to join us as we celebrate and enjoy the company of those who know the power of DYF programs!
