This November the Walt Disney World Resort will, for the first time ever, be host to a three-day charity walk sponsored by For A Cause. The Walk The World event is part of the A Walk Around The World Fundraising Walking Event series and is planned for November 14-18.
For A Cause is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that plans multi-day charity walks in vacation destinations. All participants are allowed to walk for the charity of their choice.
The Walk the World event is a walk-only fundraiser and is limited to 50 participants. Over the three days of the event, walkers will average more than 10 miles a day on the sidewalks and other walking areas of the Walt Disney World Resort, including theme parks and other locations on property. Walkers will get to visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach and the Magic Kingdom, and will have the chance to experience all the theme park attractions at their leisure. All participants will also get to enjoy group meals, shows, fireworks, and some special surprises, according to Robert Webber, president of For A Cause.
Registration for the Walk The World event is $350 per person and includes lodging at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, group meals, and group theme park tickets. Single participants will be paired with a roommate. All walkers must be 14 years old or older to participate and there is a minimum fundraising requirement for the charity of the participant’s choice.
