Registration for the 2015 Sheboygan County Area JDRF One Walk, which was formerly known as the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Kohler High School gym.

Following the customary opening ceremony and ribbon cutting, a 5K (3.1 mile) walk through a new route in Kohler is slated to start at 10 a.m.

Lunch will be served following the walk from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Walkers are encouraged to form teams and collect donations to support JDRF. Walkers can register for the walk online at www2.jdrf.org

A silent auction, which proved to be a big success last year, will return bigger and better this year and there will be additional kids activities and games inside the Kohler High School gym.

A major addition to the lineup of activities will be an awards ceremony at the conclusion of the event.

The 2014 event featured over 400 walkers from 55 teams, including 34 family and 21 corporate teams, who raised a final total of $155,531 for JDRF research.

JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes. Since it was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has raised $1.6 billion for type 1 diabetes research.

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through research. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal.

Although it helps type 1 diabetics maintain steady blood-sugar levels and live relatively normal lives, insulin is not a cure and it does not prevent potential complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke and amputation.

Since its inception, JDRF has provided more than $1.5 billion in direct funding to diabetes research, including $107 million last year.
