This past Saturday, 2200 eager runners and joggers arrived bright and early to the Disneyland Resort for the Be Well Cast Member, Friends and Family 5K. Cast Members, along with their friends and family, were invited to join in on the exclusive course through Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. Participants enjoyed running down Main Street U.S.A, meeting some of their favorite Disney characters, and getting the chance to celebrate the parks with their Disney family. Diego B., a cast member in our Katella branch, shared his thoughts on this magical event:
“The cheers. The excitement. The magic. I was so thrilled when the opportunity was presented to sign up for the 5K run for cast members, their family, and friends. I was fortunate enough to share this with my Partners family. I couldn’t believe I would run through the park seeing the sun rise. It’s really exciting to be a part of something new and something that I thought I would never do. Coming from a family who has dedicated their time to running marathons around the world, it was a huge accomplishment for me to receive my first medal. I crossed the finishing line at 56 minutes. As I heard many cheers, I felt satisfied to know that I had accomplished another personal goal. I would like to thank Sophia C. for encouraging me to try something new. With Partners, all you dreams can come true.”
Congrats Diego and all of the other Cast Member, Friends and Family 5K participants!
