20th Annual Kings Island Walk to Cure Diabetes

Kings Island
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.

Thank you for your support of the JDRF Walk!
