Walt Disney World Resort to Serve as Backdrop for First-Ever 'A Walk Around
The World' Charity Walk
For A Cause Announces Multi-Day Charity Walking Event, November 14-18, 2013
CHICAGO, March 27, 2013
CHICAGO, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The very notion of what's magical will
take on new meaning in America's most famous theme park this November. For the
first time ever, the Walt Disney World Resort will be the venue to For A
Cause, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that orchestrates multi-day charity
walks in vacation destinations that uniquely allow participants to walk for
the charity of their choice.
The "A Walk Around The World" event (https://awalkaroundtheworld.org), a
walk-only fundraiser limited to 50 participants, takes place November 14-18,
2013. Over the course of three days, walkers will hit the sidewalks and
walkways (not streets) averaging 10 miles a day, following a suggested journey
through Florida's Walt Disney World Resort. The adventure will take them
through major resorts, water parks, and several of the famed theme parks,
where walkers will experience all the sites and attractions along the way, at
their leisure. In addition, everyone will have a chance to enjoy group meals,
activities, shows, fireworks and several very special surprises, according to
Robert Webber, president of For A Cause.
"There are so many die-hard WDW fans out there who are going to love the idea
of visiting their favorite theme park while walking to raise money for the
nonprofit of their choice," Webber says. "In years past, For A Cause
participants have traveled to castles in Europe and trekked miles throughout
historical destinations, but this is the first time they'll be given a chance
to visit Cinderella's castle and walk miles throughout a fantasy destination.
It's going to be some serious fun — the Walk will be both magical and
meaningful. If your feet get a little tired, you can just hop on one of the
enchanted rides and take a break!"
The registration fee for A Walk Around The World is $350 per person and
includes a portion of the event expenses, as well as lodging at Disney's
Coronado Springs Resort, group meals and group snacks. Single participants
will be paired with a roommate, although single rooms are available for an
extra charge. Walkers must be 14+ years old to participate. There is a minimum
fundraising requirement for the charity of the participant's choice.
"As with all For A Cause events, A Walk Around The World will put participants
up in comfortable accommodations, offer excellent food, and an unforgettable
experience — this time made possible by the extraordinary setting and fanfare
at the Walt Disney World Resort," Webber says.
