Save the Children and Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side

Today, registration opened for the inaugural runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side weekend. This runDisney race weekend will include the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side, Star Wars 10k, Star Wars 5k, kid’s races, and expo. Runners can also compete in the Dark Side Challenge by participating in the half marathon and 10k.

Because this is an inaugural race, it will most likely sell out quickly. If you’re looking for a guaranteed way to enter the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side, I have a fantastic solution.

Join me on Team Save the Children. Together, we can rule the galaxy (or at least Walt Disney World.)

Runners on Team Save the Children will receive entry into their desired race or challenge, training and fundraising support, a pre-race meal, Team Save the Children shirt, and so much more. (You can find all of the registration details here.)

So, why am I running for Team Save the Children?

I am the mother of two small children.
Family
Two small children who are lucky enough to have a head start in this world. But there are millions of children who don’t have the same luxuries we have: clean water, vaccinations, education, food, and many of the other everyday things we take for granted. Save the Children works with children in the United States and around the world to help give them a better start. Investing in our children is the greatest gift we can give them, and I am proud to work with Save the Children to help make that happen.


Save the Children is a 4-star rated charity. An average of 89% of donations are used for program services, meaning your donation will go where it’s needed the most. You can see Save the Children’s full financial information by clicking the link above.

My children are huge Star Wars fans, just like their mother, so running the Dark Side Challenge with Team Save the Children is the perfect way to show them it is possible to make a difference in this world and to enjoy doing it. I can not wait to share my training journey and race experience with you over the next few months.

May The Force Be With Us All.

I am participating in the Star Wars™ Half Marathon – The Dark Side as an influencer on behalf of Team Save the Children. If you would like to donate to my fundraising efforts for Save the Children, click here for my personal fundraising page. Thank you!
