Interested runners can help raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
If you weren’t able to sign up for February’s Disney Princess Half Marathon (it’s sold out), then there’s still a chance to race at the “Happiest Place on Earth.”
According to The Washington Times, 400 new slots have been opened up thanks to a new presenting sponsor, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which raises money for 170 hospitals throughout Canada and the United States.
“We have a shared commitment to help kids and their families, and are honored to team with runDisney as the presenting sponsor of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “We have made many meaningful memories with Disney throughout our 26-year relationship and look forward to continuing that legacy with this new opportunity.”
Faron Kelley, the Director of Sports Marketing at Walt Disney World Resort, affirmed the relationship between Disney and the Children’s Miracle Network.
“We are eager to work closely with them again through our Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend in ways that support the extraordinary work they are doing with children in their 170 hospitals nationwide,” Kelley said.
