“Run a magical four miles in a race fit for a princess in our latest virtual race. Just run or walk the 4 miles on the course of your choice January 21-January 24. Please be sure to share your race photos and recap on our Facebook page at facebook.com/GoneForaRUN.”

Touchscreen gloves, cute socks, a bib and blinged out medal? I’m in! The start of a new year is the perfect time to get going with running, so sign up and get moving so you are ready to run four miles by the end of January!

However, my favorite thing about this race is that it s for a great cause:

“By entering this race you will also be running for a cause! A percentage of your race fee will be donated to Give The Kids The World. Give Kids The World Village is a 79-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides week long, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Please visit givekidstheworld.org for more information.”

I have never visited Give Kids the World, but I have checked out their website and know people who have gone there before with their families. It it an amazing organization and I am happy to support them!

QOTD: Have you heard of Give Kids the World? What is your favorite charity to support?

Disclosure: I was provided a free entry into this race, but totally would have signed up anyway! All opinions are my own.

  1. I was one of the last 4 classes ever at the Navy “A” school in Orlando. We used to volunteer a lot at GKTW. The campus is amazing! My cousin’s child just got his wish granted during 2015 Wine and Dine, and I met up with them at MK and I got to see first hand how MAW and GKTW operate their wishes. Unbelievable is the only word I can think of! I’m fairly certain that if you ask GKTW in advance, that you would be able to ask to go see the main public areas. It is an amazing place, indeed!!

  2. I am excited about this one since I won’t be at Princess this year! Such a fun theme!

  3. That medal is gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to do a virtual race. This seems like a great one!

    We love GKTW. I have initially got involved with GKTW in 1998 through work when they were expanding the Village. Since then we have been involved in about 3 different expansion projects and this has become my families favorite charity. We donate through both volunteer hours and donations throughout the year. Be on the lookout for their Gingerbread Run 5k each November, and now they also have teams for marathon weekend. I will be sporting the polka dot shirt for at least one race during Dopey this year.

    • That’s awesome! I know some folks who went and I got to see all of their pics and hear wonderful stories a few years ago. Love it!
