Team #runDisney is hosting a virtual 5K to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and we could use your help!
Right now, you may be asking yourself some questions? What is Team #runDisney? What is a Virtual 5K? Why was it 60 degrees last week, and now 40 degrees today?
Well, I can definitely help with two out of three of those questions!
Team #runDisney is a Facebook group that was started about six months ago. We were started by a group of runDisney enthusiasts that just found it hard to talk about our enthusiasm for runDisney races in just 140 characters. There's so much that goes into a runDisney experience - trip planning, meeting up with friends, the races, the expos, the parks - that trying to fit all this excitement into 140 characters was nearly impossible.
Six months later and we've grown into a group with 400 amazing members. We've been able to meet each other at the Disnseyland Half Marathon, the Tower of Terror 10 Miler, and this past weekend at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. Some of our members are very well known for their association with runDisney and help bring the runDisney experience that much closer to everyone in the group.

In that group, we try to help each other with different activities we may have going on. This can be helping to vote for group members in various competitions, or helping to fund raise for various charities. That's where the Virtual 5K idea came from.
A Virtual 5K is a race that is organized online, but run where you live. Runners sign up together, then run the distance around where they live. Given that it's a fun run, time isn't really important. In the end, each of the participants receives a medal, because let's face it, that's really one of the best parts of running a race!
So Team #runDisney is looking for your help! Our goal is to have 100 participants sign up for our Virtual 5K. The entry fee is just $20, with all proceeds going to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. And the best part of this is you get this awesome medal!
