National Volunteer Week


From April 16-22, we celebrated National Volunteer Week! All week long, Breakthrough T1D celebrated our remarkable volunteer partners who dedicate themselves to supporting, connecting, and empowering the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community.

During National Volunteer Week, we recognized our 2023 volunteer award recipients. These individuals are moving Breakthrough T1D’s mission and vision forward through their relentless dedication and passion. We are proud to honor Julie Wisbrock & Becky Wiseman for their  noteworthy contributions to the Breakthrough T1D Kansas & Missouri Chapter. Julie & Becky, you have left an indelible mark on our chapter and local community. Thank you for selflessly giving of your time and talent to advance our shared mission!

From Executive Council, board members, and event committees to office volunteers, advocacy leaders, and youth ambassadors, we thank each and every one of you who share your time, talent, and passion with us. Together, we will continue to push forward until a world without T1D becomes a reality. Thank you!
