Avengers Superheroes Weekend Kicks Off At Disneyland

November 16, 2014

(Anaheim, Calif.) -- On November 15 and 16, thousands of enthusiastic runners and comic book fans descended on the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. for the first-ever Avengers Superheroes Weekend.

Many of the participants dressed for the occasion as Falcon, Captain America, Black Widow, and other favorites. Team Up! with Autism Speaks had a contingent of 30 runners doing a 5k or half marathon, one of whom traversed the course as Thor and completed his costume with an Autism Speaks cape! This group has already raised over $50,000—definitely making them super heroes to us!
