Walk raises $280K for diabetes researchMay 20, 2019
From Local Sources
SANTA CLAUS — Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari hosted the park’s 14th annual JDRF One Walk Sunday, raising more than $280,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Holiday World donated tickets to JDRF for the day’s event. The tickets were earned by individuals, families, and teams who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations for the walk.
Holiday World has helped raise $4.3 million for JDRF since the park’s late president, Will Koch — who was diabetic — started the event in 2006. Koch’s daughter, Lauren Crosby, was on hand Sunday morning to thank the walkers, who numbered nearly 1,000.
According to JDRF’s website, there are nearly 200 One Walk fundraisers nationally each year, with proceeds going to research to “turn Type One into Type None.”
