    Following along. Not sure I can make it with baseball and softball, but that is my favorite park day at Cedar Point next to Mother's Day and the first Sunday after Labor Day :)

    Just as a heads up. The 25 covers admission to the parks, but to participate in the marathon (ride rides) you will need to raise an additional $75 per person.

    Thinking about joining up at Canada's Wonderland.

    So I was planning on making my own team as we have done in the past. Is there a way to have my own team but still "give credit" to the dis? If not, we will just join up under the one that you setup.

    Not sure Mike.

    They're not using FirstGiving this year, so the system is way different than before.

    Ya, I'll just sign up under the account you setup and see what happens. No big deal.

    Anyone know any information on what Worlds of Fun did in previous years for this event? I'm considering it, but it would really be contingent on what coaster it was.
    They open, for the year, in about a week so hopefully that's when we'll see some more information.

    My contact at GKTW says that there's a "new re-ride policy" that's causing some delays in finalizing the plans at some of the Parks.

    I'll let you know if I hear anything else.

    My wife and I just signed up and plan on flying down from Washington to participate.

    We are both coaster junkies and I should have done something to raise money for GKTW a long time ago.

    Time to start knocking on doors, making phone calls, and sending emails.

    Can't wait!

    The Dis has also graciously donated a "Dis hashtag" t shirt for one of our top fundraisers. These were limited edition and no longer available for purchase. Who's going to be the lucky winner??

    Do we have a "team" for registration? Or do I just do the regular registration? Thanks!
