Question Who's Interested in a DIS/GKTW Team for 2010 Marathon Weekend?

Greetings Everyone: I have a call in to Disney Sports about getting an official Charity Group together for the 2010 Marathon Weekend. The person I'm trying to get in touch with is out sick and is supposed to call me back this week. I thought I should have some numbers for her though when we talk. So here's my question.

How many people would be interested in a DIS Unplugged/GKTW Charity Group for the 2010 Marathon Weekend? I'd like to have a rough estimate of how many registration entries we need to reserve for our team.

So can you vote in the poll if you would like a registration spot for the 5k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, Goofy, or Goofy & 5k (sometimes called the Dopey). This does not commit you to anything right now. I'm just trying to gauge interest.

Thanks.

Hello Mouse Skywalker,

I have already registered for the 1/2 marathon, along with my son and his girlfriend. I may have another 2 or three signing up in the next week or so. I would still like to be be part of the team, even though I have already committed.

Dave

Count me in Dave. My old bones can handle a 1/2 marathon.

Dave, if you're interested, I'll ask if you can move your registration to our group. Even if you're not interested in moving the registration, there may be others out there who might be.

One of the things I thought might be fun too over marathon weekend is to take some time to take a group to do a volunteer shift at GKTW.

We would make the move to be part of the team. Just let me know.

And it would be wonderful to at least visit GKTW Village just to meet the kids and families. Volunteering would be the cherry on the sundae.

I would like to try and do the 1/2 marathon and the 5 k. I just received my 1/2 marathon training book and journal. So count me in.

I am so excited! Can I get officially excited yet?

1/2 for me! I will be WALKING the half...if anyone wants to join me!

Not sure who would come with me...but there would probably be another entry, too!

can we post this thread...or a link to this thread...on the WISH board? On the main page and the Events page? There would probably be more Disers interested on there?

Hi Dave!

Thanks for doing all the leg work and getting some answers for us.

I would like to do the Half Marathon and maybe the 5k as well?

I think that volunteering at GKTW would be good, too.

I'm working on the Couch to 5K plan! I'm hoping to lose some (lots!) of weight and be able to run the 5k or even the half! That will be my birthday weekend next year. We need to make it to the finish!

maroo, I am also walking the half. I'm mainly a walker, but I occasionally intersperse my walking with a little bit of jogging, so I guess I'm a jogger.

Dave, Thank you for doing this! I know nothing's concrete yet, but I just want to say thank you for all you are doing to try and make this possible.
