GKTW Online Fundraiser: A Walk Around the Worlds for Give Kids the World
A Half-Marathon Walking Around World Showcase on Presidents Day
I have created a fund-raiser for Give Kids the World. It is kind of unique in that I came up with the idea and created the event. Let me explain.
First, the beneficiary: Give Kids the World – a 70-acre, non-profit “storybook” resort, located near Disney World, where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations. I love the idea and know from first-hand experience what a little bit of magic can do to boost the optimism and well-being of a critically sick person and their families. And, they serve ice cream for breakfast!
Second, the challenge: So what am I doing? This February, Presidents Day, my partner and I are going to walk around the Epcot World Showcase at Walt Disney World, 10 times! That is more than a half-marathon! Our event is called “A Walk around the Worlds for Give Kids the World.” Cool huh?
Third, what you can do: Go to my first-giving, web page (http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/WARW4GKTW/2012) to check out the video that will give you more information about Give Kids the World, and if you feel like it, sponsor us.
If your in the park come look for us. Hmm! Not sure exactly how you will identify us. Perhaps this helps, I am 6'2" and wll probably be wearing a white baseball cap. Darn! Should have bought a Give Kids the World T-Shirt!
