Helping out a Disney Friend

Hi everyone,

Some of you know that I am planning to run the Tower of Terror 10-miler in October this year. The reason I decided to do this is that I have a good friend who has been battling cancer and I am trying to round up enough money to send her and her family to WDW for a week in December. I am seeking per-mile donations via gofundme.com and all proceeds will go towards a trip for my friend Jessica and her family. If you would like to sponsor Jessica and her family by sponsoring my run, please click the following link. Thanks for your consideration. Now back to our regularly scheduled Disney fun time!!

Hi everyone, today is the two-month mark until race day, so I just wanted to give this post a gentle nudge. If you are considering allocating a few dollars to help out someone in need this month, would you consider sponsoring me for ToT 10-miler. All of the proceeds go toward sending a lovely family to Disney. We're down to the last $1000 to cover the cost of the trip and any additional that we raise will be given to the family for incidental expenses. They were conservative in their reservations and they are driving instead of flying, so it will be a great trip, but it's not extravagant by any means.

To help out, click on "Tower of Terror 10-miler" in bold on the original post to be directed to the GoFundMe site.

A huge thank you to everyone who has so generously donated thus far and thanks for your consideration! mickey
