Cast Members Surprise Runner After He Completed Mouse-To-Mouse Run
Earlier this month we shared the awesome story with you of Don Muchow who, to raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes took on the incredible task of running from Disneyland to Wat Disney World.
But something we may not have shared with you is that when he finally crossed the finish line at Magic Kingdom Park in Florida, Disney cast members celebrated this awesome accomplishment with a big dose of pixie dust.
Muchow who confessed that he and his wife are “huge Disney fans” combined his love of ultrarunner and Ironman training with an affinity for all things Disney to complete the 2,761 journey from Resort to Resort. He began the run bag in February logging an impressive 30 miles a day before finishing at the foot of Cinderella Castle!
When Don reached the Magic Kingdom, Disney World’s incredible cast members were on hand to give him cheers and a giant round of applause. The 59 year-old runner told Disney that it was surreal to finish.
How did he celebrate? With a Mickey Mouse ice cream bar of course along with a ride on his favorite attraction – “It’s a small world!” That sounds like the perfect ending!
During his visit to the Magic Kingdom, Don also had an opportunity to meet with a cast member whose daughter has Type 1 diabetes and other cast members with similar stories. Part of Don’s Run Across America mission was to empower those with Type 1 diabetes to Dream Big! .
