    Disney dreams nearly dashed until last minute

    By Khuong Phan

    The Childses have competed in dozens of races and have always been welcomed with open arms; however, that all changed recently.

    Like most kids, Marcus loves Disney World. Every year, the park holds a marathon and half-marathon and Childs thought it would be great thing to do. Hearing that the event fills up quickly, Childs mailed his and Marcus’ registration forms and fees — $210 total — for the January 2008 race last month. Not even a week later, Childs received a call from the race organizers stating that his son could not compete in the marathon because he was not 18.
