As you may know, in 2007 Lou challenged himself to run a half marathon. In 2008 that dream became a reality and along the way he has inspired many people in the Disney online community to follow suit. Wether they chose to begin running Disney races for health, personal accomplishment, camaraderie or just for fun, their numbers have been growing exponentially. Along the way we have challenged the same online community to run with us to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America through our Dream Team Project. It is our goal to for your help to make a profound difference in the lives of children and their families by makeing a child’s dreams of going to Walt Disney World come true.
In 2010, I blogged out an invitation to the Disney online community to join our WDW Radio Running Team. Since that time we have grown from a group of eight to a Team of over 100!
“How can I be a part of all of this?”, you ask?
To be a member of the WDW Radio Running Team you need to:
- Join the team for a cost of $35.00 to cover membership materials including but not limited to Team tek (moisture wicking) shirts, headband, membership certificate and shipping cost.
- Commit to fundraising for the marathon at a minimum donation of $100 to Make-A-Wish Foundation of America through the Dream Team Project . That commitment can be for a couple, family, etc. and not for an individual.
- Additional Team Shirts can be purchased for Family members, be they runners or supporters for an additional $35.00.
Team meet ups on Marathon weekendtakes place each year
Team Members can join the WDW Radio Running Team Facebook page to share training progress and tips. Remember, none of our runners are professionals, we are taking it one step at a time just like you!

After coming home from the January Walt Disney World® runDisney Marathon Weekend, family and friends asked how things went. I was happy to tell all about my races and the fun times with friends. Invariably, the conversations would lead up to the big question, “So, what’s next?” A weekend full of fun, friends, and running […]
Phew… that Marathon sure was exhausting! Full disclosure, I did NOT run the Marathon! However, the day was exhausting! Waking up for the fourth day (fifth if you count the day we flew down) at “dark o’clock” was seemingly easy. We quickly prepped for the day. While I was not running, one of my hotel […]

Thanks and congratulations to everyone who participated – whether you ran, walked, wheeled, jogged, or cheered, you were an important part of the event.

by James Hansen I’ve had the awesome opportunity to attend a couple of runDisney meetups at Walt Disney World, but this was my first at Disneyland. It was a bit unique because, rather than being associated with a race weekend, it corresponded with the beginning of the D23 Expo! We met at 5:30am in front […]
