I created this event to help train and celebrate running the Glass Slipper Challenge at Walt Disney World as part of Disney's Princess Half Marathon weekend. The Glass Slipper Challenge is a 10K on Saturday followed by a half marathon on Sunday. To help encourage me and my Princess friends and for those who are not making it to Walt Disney World for the Glass Slipper Challenge but still want to be a part of the action, I thought up the "Earning My Glass Slipper" virtual run. There are two options, either the 1.93 mile training run or the 19.3 accumulative run. You can do the challenge at anytime, anywhere. The medal are the same, except for the laser engraved distance. The are a 2" color die cast custom medal. The cost for the race is $19.30, one dollar for each mile I will be running for Give Kids The World, and that includes shipping. You can chose you medal below. I have included some info about GKTW and their mission. Please check out my fundraising page as well.
I am running as part of the Run GKTW Team. My goal is to raise $3,000 for Give Kids The World, a non-profit that exists solely to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. These deserving families are treated to week long fantasy vacations to Central Florida where accommodations, attraction tickets, entertainment, meals and more are all provided at no cost.
Give Kids The World has been awarded a four-star rating for sound fiscal management for eight consecutive years by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities. In 2010, GKTW was recognized as the #1 most fiscally responsible charity by Worth Magazine, and MSN Money named GKTW the Highest Rated Charity in America in 2012. Give Kids The World’s commitment to accountability and transparency assures supporters that their donation is used in the most responsible and efficient way possible.
Since its founding in 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 125,000 families from all 50 states and more than 70 countries. In 2012, the Village served 7,337 families—the highest number in the organization’s 27 year history. During my trip to Orlando, I will have the opportunity to visit Give Kids The World Village and see the impact of your donations first-hand. I hope you will consider sponsoring me for this very worthwhile cause.
Registration is now closed. If there are extra medals once the arrive I will open registration again.
