This weekend 300 individuals will run on behalf of Give Kids The World Village at the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. However, the opportunity to support Give Kids The World Village lasts all year! When you run on behalf of the Village you help support children and families battling critical illness from all over the world.
Race participant and Give Kids The World supporter Christine Zeledon says she chose to run on behalf of Give Kids The World to give back to the community in a big way. She is a previous volunteer and knowing what the Village does for so many children and families her decision to run for Give Kids The World was an easy choice.
“I’ve always loved running and runDisney races, so being able to do what I love, and raise money for a good cause was such a heartwarming reward.” – Christine Zeledon
