HEADing to 2022 is a grass roots initiative focused on raising funds for Canadian researchers. We are partnered with, and a committee of, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, Canada, Inc. (DRIFCan).
All funds raised through this initiative will go to Canadian researchers to help them find a practical cure for diabetes.

Our Goal

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first successful injection of insulin in 1922, our goal is to raise $22 million by 2022 so that Canadian researchers can take the cure from laboratories in Canada to people with Diabetes around the world.

Canadian Connection

Canadian researchers have led the way for close to 100 years.

Our Priorities

Minimal Administration Costs
Keep administration costs to a bare minimum with the goal of donating in excess of 95% raised directly to researchers.

Transparency
Transparency on what has been raised, administrative costs and what has been donated.

Accountability
Accountability so researchers must report progress and results on a regular basis so that donors know what is being done with their money.

Easy to Participate
Make it as easy as possible for the average Canadian to participate.
