This fall, the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida will be the venue to For A Cause, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that orchestrates multi-day charity walks in vacation destinations. This group is unique in that they allow participants to walk for the charity of their choice. The “A Walk Around The World” event will be a walk-only fundraiser that can only accommodate 50 participants. It is scheduled to occur November 14-18, 2013. Over the course of three days, participants will average walking ten miles each day. Their course will take them through Disney World resorts, water parks, and theme parks.

“There are so many die-hard WDW fans out there who are going to love the idea of visiting their favorite theme park while walking to raise money for the nonprofit of their choice,” according to Robert Webber, president of For A Cause. “In years past, For A Cause participants have traveled to castles in Europe and trekked miles throughout historical destinations, but this is the first time they’ll be given a chance to visit Cinderella’s castle and walk miles throughout a fantasy destination. It’s going to be some serious fun — the Walk will be both magical and meaningful. If your feet get a little tired, you can just hop on one of the enchanted rides and take a break!”
Participants can walk at their own pace and even stop to enjoy their favorite Disney World attractions along the way. ‘A Walk Around the World’ will offer group meals, activities, shows, fireworks and several very special surprises. The registration fee for the event is $350 per person and includes a portion of the event expenses, as well as lodging at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, group meals and group snacks. Single participants will be paired with a roommate, although single rooms are available for an extra charge. Walkers must be at least 14 years old to participate. There is also a minimum fundraising requirement for the charity of the participant’s choice.“As with all For A Cause events, A Walk Around The World will put participants up in comfortable accommodations, offer excellent food, and an unforgettable experience — this time made possible by the extraordinary setting and fanfare at the Walt Disney World Resort,” Webber says.Are you ready to book your next Disney World vacation?
