Each year Team JDRF provides JDRF fundraisers entry into some of the country’s most exciting challenge events.
This January, Team JDRF brings our fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D) back to Walt Disney World for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend!
The race weekend lasts four magical days with a different race each day, including: a 5K on Thursday, 10K on Friday, Half Marathon on Saturday, and Full Marathon on Sunday. For our super runners, there are two multi-race options which include the Goofy Challenge (Race in the Half Marathon and the Full Marathon on Sunday) and the Dopey Challenge (race in all four distances).
New for 2020!
- You will be able to stay wherever you want—no more having to stay at a specific location or have a certain park pass
- You can Run Disney with Team JDRF…Your Way! This year if you secure your own race entry through runDisney for the race distance of your choice, you can register as a Team JDRF supporter with no fundraising minimum. JDRF Supporters will have the opportunity to earn Team JDRF swag and race weekend benefits.
- Check out this year’s fundraising packages here (and be sure to take a look at the JDRF supporter column) to see all that’s included!
