Hershey Walk

Thanks to our Walkers, the 2014 Walk to Cure Diabetes at Hersheypark on Sunday, September 28th was a huge success, raising over $233,000 so far!

Teams and Walkers have until October 31 to turn in donations to count towards the JDRF National Incentive Prize program.  Continue your fundraising to help us reach our goal!

Walk to Cure Diabetes – What to Expect

ATTENTION WALKERS:  Please check back often for updates and everything you need to know for Walk Day on September 28th.

The Walk to Cure Diabetes is a day of celebration thanking you, our Walk Teams for all of your hard work fundraising.  Please check out the Hershey Walk Day Info 2014 – this documnet contains everything you need to know for Walk Day!

  • We are back at Hersheypark Stadium! – back by popular demand, the walk will begin and end in the Hersheypark Stadium (not the arena where we were for the 2013 Walk), but the walk route will still go through the park.
  • Schedule – Check-In begins at 8:00 am.  The Walk will step off promptly at 9:15 am.
  • Parking – All cars coming to the walk MUST have this parking pass: Parking Pass Hershey Walk 2014.  Download and print out as many copies as you need.  Must be displayed in your windshield to be eligible for the free parking.
