Walk with JDRF at Six Flags New England to support their fight against Type 1 Diabetes
On Sunday, October 1, show your support for the cause by participating in the family-friendly JDRF ONE WALK throughout the Thrill Capital of New England. This 1.5-mile walk will help raise awareness and funds for the local Greater Connecticut/Western MA Chapter of JDRF, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with Type 1 Diabetes.
For every $75 donated, Six Flags New England will donate 1 ticket to the registered fundraiser (Capped at 4,000 tickets). Walkers are invited to participate in the walk’s kickoff ceremony while enjoying snacks, refreshments, music and world-class entertainment.
Each year, over 5,000 people participate in the walk. Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. in our main parking lot. We will have a brief kick-off celebration at 9:30 a.m. before beginning the 1.5-mile walk around the area. Following the walk, you may stay and celebrate with family activities, characters, food and live entertainment until the park opens at 12 p.m.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research. Their mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. To accomplish this, JDRF has invested more than $2 billion in research funding since its inception. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. By joining our Walk Team or making a donation, you’ll help make a difference and raise funds to directly support research for the foundation.
