They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of.  But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the TONY and GRAMMY Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

JDRF Walk

June 9

Westhills Stadium, Langford

More than 300,000 children, teens and adults live with type 1 diabetes in Canada. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks and destroys the insulin producing cells made by the pancreas. With no known cause and no cure, there is no way to prevent this disease and as a result approximately 50 people are still diagnosed every day in Canada. But our current momentum has led to research breakthroughs that are helping people with type 1 live longer and healthier lives. NHL hockey player, Max Domi, is in his second year as JDRF’s National Spokesperson, a role through which he is helping raise awareness and funds for research. Diagnosed at age 12 with type 1 diabetes, Max knows first-hand the challenges of living with this disease. Through the Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF, Max tells his personal story to inspire young people living with type 1 to follow their dreams.
