Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
This Saturday marked the 25th annual JDRF One Walk at Kings Island with an event-record of more than $1 million raised and over 8,000 participants.
JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for Type One diabetes (T1D) and turn Type One into Type None. The JDRF One Walk features a 3k course around Kings Island, offering views of popular attractions like Banshee, Diamondback, Mystic Timbers, Planet Snoopy and some also caught a glimpse of Grand Carnivale props and floats. Seeing the coordinated t-shirts, with some people carrying balloons and hearing heart-warming as well as heart-breaking stories from the walkers was very moving.
Even though I wasn’t an official walker I walked with the crowds throughout the park, taking many pictures along the way and felt a bond with these people who were walking for such an important cause.
The event at Kings Island is one of the largest fundraising walks – and overall nonprofit fundraising events – in the region. Since 1994, more than $14 million has been raised from the walks at the 364-acre amusement and water park, including this year’s total.
The JDRF One Walk has been one of my favorite events at Kings Island this season. Thank you to all who participated and helped raise money for an amazing cause. Together we can turn Type One into Type None!
