It was Magic Indeed!
Magic is what helped seven of our Enterey team members to stir excitedly awake in the wee hours of the night and get themselves to the start of the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend at the Disneyland Resort.
As part of our Enterey Gives Back initiative, our runners participated as part of Team Lemon, the endurance racing fund raising team for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation(ALSF). Our team helped raise over $9000 to help ALSF and their continued fight to bring the latest technology, support, and care to young cancer patients.
The weekend of fun included the kids race, a 5k race, a health and fitness expo, a 10k race, a half marathon, and the Dumbo Double Dare. Two of our very own ambitious runners challenged themselves to compete in the 10k race on Saturday morning and the half marathon on Sunday morning. Both Alicia Mejia and Mike Ferletic finished the Dumbo Double Dare with Disney pride!
The course was lined with cheering spectators, Mickey high-fives, and live music played by local college and high-school bands. The excitement of Radiator Springs Racers refueled their energy as they came upon the halfway mark during the 10k. Once the runners flew by Soaring Over California there was no time for stopping until the iconic Cinderella’s Castle. That was a definite Kodak moment!
This past Labor Day Weekend, the mission was accomplished. Each runner set out to complete their races and they did it with smiles. Our biggest achievement, however, was the contribution made towards childhood cancer awareness. Enterey is proud to support ALSF and their efforts to be a difference-maker in the fight against childhood cancer.
