Children’s Miracle Network Named as Presenting Sponsor for Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend

Children's Miracle Network has been named as the presenting sponsor for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend at the Walt Disney World Resort.

As the presenting sponsor the Network will have the opportunity to raise awareness and fundraising for the Network's 170 children's hospitals.

Disney and Children's Miracle Network have a relationship that goes back to 1987 when the Network hosted its annual telethon at Disneyland Resort. In later years, the Walt Disney World Resort hosted the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, a PGA Tour event.

The charity will receive up to 400 registrations for the sold-out races that are reserved for runners who are interested in fundraising for the group. Half-marathon participants must raise a minimum of $300 to participate. Runners who commit to raise more than $1,600 will receive a two-day Park Hopper pass and a two-night stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.

"We've enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals," said Faron Kelley, director of sports marketing at Walt Disney World Resort. "We are eager to work closely with them again through our Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend in ways that support the extraordinary work they are doing with children in their 170 hospitals nationwide."

The Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is scheduled for February 20-23, 2014 and includes a Royal Family 5K, the Disney Enchanted 10K, runDisney kids' races, and the half marathon.
