JDRF One World is the first-ever charity game built on the Roblox platform. JDRF has been built to raise awareness and support research into type 1 diabetes.

Built in collaboration with developer MelonDev, JDRF One World currently features an interactive JDRF One Walk experience complete with walking track, information tents, six minigames, and virtual prizes. To play the game head over to the JDFR One World game page.

Team up with friends to run through a Fall Guys-style parkour course, make your way through a timed maze, find all the items in a scavenger hunt, compete in a T1D-themed trivia game, and more! Win all the minigames to gain access to the V1P tent where a dance party with special guests from the diabetes world awaits.

Check out some of the mini games in the video below:

JDRF One World was built to fill a void caused when COVID-19 required the cancellation of traditional in-person fundraisers and community events. It officially launched yesterday as part of JDRF’s reimagined JDRF One Walk celebration, with more than 58k visits so far. The game will stay online indefinitely and will have new content added over time.

Whether you have type 1 diabetes yourself, have a friend or family connection to the disease, or just want to have fun and learn about T1D, JDRF One World is a family-friendly game open to all. Please view the JDRF One World FAQ to learn more.

Other video game fundraisers happening in November:

  • NDAM Livestream Fundraiser: The JDRF Game2Give community, made up of gamers and content creators with T1D connections, will attempt to raise $20,000 through charity streams on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube, while also raising T1D awareness and sharing their personal experiences. Charity streams will take place all month with a focus on the weekend of November 21-22. To take part as a streamer, tune in as a viewer, or make a donation, visit JDRF’s NDAM event page on Tiltify.
