Walk to Cure Diabetes is the fastest growing fundraising event in the history of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Last year, nearly $86 million was raised through Walk to Cure Diabetes to fund diabetes research. This year, the Walk To Cure Diabetes is expected to surpass $90 million.
Last year, over 500,000 participated at one of 200 sites throughout the country. This year, men, women, and children including those from over 5,000 large corporations and local companies will participate at one of our 200 sites. Funds are raised as walkers ask friends, relatives and co-workers to sponsor them for participating in the walk.

Joe Downing was born in Middletown, OH and currently lives in Nashville, TN. Downing grew up listening to everything from the Motown sound to the popular recording artists of today. He believes in the theory that great art can inspire great art, as he names some of his biggest influences such
as: Sam Cooke, Tom Petty and Frank Sinatra, just to name a few. In 2012, Joe released his sophomore EP called “Scrapbook.” With songs like “Where I Come From,” “The You I Like the Best,” and “Wakin’ Up,”
it is easy to see that Joe Downing has grown as a storyteller, melody writer and all around artist. His soulful vocals and his groovy melodies make him an instant hit, no matter the venue. “Whether I’m playing for one person or thousands, I always try to give it my all, so that when the audience walks away, they say: ‘That Joe Downing guy… I’m going to remember him.’
Joe will be singing the National Anthem and performing at the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes at Kings Island on June 1st. In the month of June 2013, Joe will be donating 100% of his downloads and 50% of his cd sales that come from his website to JDRF.”
