Amusement Parks: Holiday World – $275, 000+ Raised at ‘Walk to Cure Diabetes’


Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari hosted the fourth annual “Walk to Cure Diabetes” , raising more than $275, 000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari donated close to 1, 500 tickets to JDRF; those tickets were “earned” by individuals, families, and teams who raise donations for the walk. The local fund-raising goal this year is $310, 000; event planners are confident they will reach that amount by the end of the month.

A second goal, to raise $1, 000, 000 in four years of JDRF Walks at Holiday World, was surpassed.

“They can send a man to the moon and back, but we still haven’t found a cure for this disease, ” says park matriarch Pat Koch, whose oldest son has juvenile diabetes. “It’s important that we all pull together to fund research to finally find a cure for diabetes. One million dollars gets us that much closer.”

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are now open daily. New this year is the World’s Tallest Water Ride, Pilgrims Plunge. For more information, visit or call 1-877-Go-Family.
