We, as characters of the Star Wars galaxy, accept the challenge to raise money for Give Kids The World Village! The 501st Legion, Rebel Legion, and friends will be providing not only race support, but also fully armored Troopers in the race itself! The legions love to support GKTW and will be there to motivate runners through this Challenge for Hope!
Every day, this nonprofit “storybook” resort provides cost-free vacations to children and families battling critical illnesses, and we believe those vacations create happiness and hope when these families need it most.
When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, their family’s life become full of unexpected and unpredictable challenges, from doctor appointments to hospital stays and medical treatments.
But for one week, children and families have the chance to laugh, play and simply spend time together – both at the Village and at Central Florida’s world-class theme parks and attractions.
Give Kids The World Village becomes a home-away-from-home during their once-in-a-lifetime trip and it doesn’t cost the families a cent.
That’s why we’re taking on the Challenge for Hope. On December 8, we’ll join fellow Challengers at the Village, as we walk, run, roll, or stroll through a 5K that captures the magic families experience during their stay.
Thank you from all of us and the great kids you’re going to help!
