Strides for Hope Disney Wine & Dine - November 9 & 10, 2012|
Disney Strides 2012 was MAGICAL!!! Those words could be heard from the team as we took part in the Walt Disney Wine & Dine 5K and 1/2 Marathon. The team left from Philadelphia airport on Thursday, November 8th amid concerns of snow, but landed in sunny Florida, and was greeted by Mickey, Minnie and a cast of thousands!!! The 5K took off on Saturday, November 10th at 7 a.m., with the walking and running course that worked its way through Animal Kingdom. Many of the residents of the Kingdom came out to greet the 4,000 plus participants. Next up was the 1/2 marathon that evening with a start time of 10 p.m. from the ESPN complex. Our group took to the streets and all finished in style! Last walkers across the finish line at about 2 AM! The course was through Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot! Our team was AWESOME! Thank you, Alexis, Chris, Amy, Mollie, Andrea, LaBarre, Jan, Ray, Shanda, Don, Kate, Phyllis, Marty, David, Emily (our birthday girl!), Kory, Denise, Steve, Cammie, Lexie and Jessica. Also helping our team cross the finish line was Paul and Doug! Enjoy the pictures!!! No decisions made yet for 2013, but stay tuned!!
