Running for Kids

I’m a runner.

I’m a Disney fan.

My family has been touched by cancer in a very big way.

In January I’m going to put all those together as I run the Walt Disney World Half Marathon as a member of the Inaugural GKTW Charity Team.


Give Kids the World Village is an amazing place in Central Florida which grants wishes to critically ill children and their families. As they say at GKTW, it’s all about a week of YES’s.  I invite you to check out what they do!

I would be honored if you would sponsor me as I work to meet my fundraising goal. Visit this link if you’re so inclined to do so – any amount is appreciated!! And if you can’t right now, I still invite you to follow along as I might talk about my training efforts here. It’s been a long time since I’ve run this far!

Here is what your donation can do…

$25 says YES to unlimited ice cream served in the Ice Cream Palace for an entire week for one family. Imagine! Ice cream for breakfast! And the only hard part is choosing between a cone, cup, sundae, or banana split!

$50 says YES to a welcome basket for one family. Each basket includes milk, juice, and snacks in the fridge and gifts including an autograph book for the kids to capture signatures of their favorite characters.

$75 says YES to the Gift-giving Fairy who delivers gifts to each child in the family, every day of their stay. Stuffed animals, DVD’s, games, souvenirs, and more – all the things that make a child’s face light up with joy.

$100 says YES to Christmas every Thursday, complete with visits from Santa, horse-drawn carriage rides, and yes, even snow in Florida!

50 Lashes with a wet noodle!

Just a quick note to myself, mostly. What a bad blogger I have been! Too bad too, since I have so many half written and AWESOME posts in my head.

Sure, that’s what they all say.
