Give Kids The World Team for the 2014 Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend

Lake Buena Vista, Florida

In January of 2014, I will be running the Walt Disney World® Half Marathon as part of the Run GKTW Team. My goal is to raise $3,000 for Give Kids The World, a non-profit that exists solely to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. These deserving families are treated to weeklong fantasy vacations to Central Florida where accommodations, attraction tickets, entertainment, meals and more are all provided at no cost.

In 2012, my family and I were lucky enough to stay at Give Kids the World.  My daughter, Loretta, was granted a wish through the Make a Wish Foundation.  This trip was the most magical and wonderful experience of my family's life.  We will never forget it, and I would like to do my part in making sure that every child with a life-threatening illness is given the opportunity to visit this magical place.

During my trip to Orlando, I will have the opportunity to visit Give Kids The World Village again and see the impact of your donations first-hand. I hope you will consider sponsoring me for this very worthwhile cause. Donating through this website is simple and secure. If you prefer to make a contribution using cash or check (made payable to Give Kids The World), please contact me directly at getola@stny.rr.com.

Thank you for support!
