A Tour de Cure

Jonathan, Cody and I decided to participate in the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day” a few months ago. I started researching volunteer opportunities and came across one that was perfect for us-the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure 2010 at Lake Nona. It was a cause that meant something to us and we wanted to volunteer at a sporting event so we signed up. We volunteered for several hours cheering on the riders as they approached and crossed the finish line. The weather was perfect and the event seemed to run seamlessly. Disney’s “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day” promotion just ended within the last few weeks, which means that 1 million people have volunteered their time to earn a one-day, one-park Disney ticket. What an amazing contribution Disney made to all of these organizations that count on volunteers to not only thrive but survive and the awareness Disney brought of the need for volunteers. From what I understand Disney’s promotion was to go until the end of 2010 or until they reached 1 million volunteers-it’s only March and the promotion has ended-I think that says it all. I had my camera at the finish line of the race and caught a few great moments…

In between cyclists crossing the finish line Jonathan and Cody would practice their skills with the water bottles…
