Team Up! with Autism Speaks had 60 participants in the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, with many of them in Princess costumes. On race week the runners met up for a fantastic buffet-style dinner at the Coronado Springs Convention Center with their teammates, as well their families and friends.
On Saturday, some of our runners enjoyed the 10k on an enchanted journey throughout Epcot, while on Sunday, our Half Marathon group participated in a fantastic 13.1 mile course through the most magical place on earth including Disney's Magic Kingdom® Park. And some of our runners participated in both races to earn the Glass Slipper Challenge Medal, running 23.2 magical miles in two days!
This weekend was definitely full of miles, smiles, medals, sweat, hugs and accomplishments, not to mention raising over $100,000! Congratulations to each of our runners for their impressive feats, with special thanks to their families and friends for their support throughout the training cycle, cheering, and fundraising.
