2017 Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at the WDW Resort
April 20-23, 2017
Volunteers are needed on behalf of Noah's Light Foundation at the 2017 Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side. Noah's Light Foundation was established in 2010 by Amber Larkin after her son, Noah, was treated for medulloblastoma, an aggressive form of pediatric brain cancer. After learning that few treatments for pediatric cancer had been developed in the past 30 years, Amber knew she had to act. The Foundation's goal is to fund revolutionary, immune based research that leads to a cure. In the five short years since its inception, this research has already led to The NOAH Protocol, a ground breaking treatment which harnesses the power of the body's own natural killer (NK) cells rather than harmful chemotherapy and radiation. This path gives hope to families that their children will not only survive, but thrive, after a cancer diagnosis.
Volunteer positions are available from Thursday, April 20 through Sunday, April 23, 2017. The Noah's Light Foundation volunteers must be at least 14 years of age, however, some locations have an age requirement of 16 years of age. Volunteers under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian sign a waiver prior to the event. To print a waiver, please visit http://www.rundisney.com/volunteer/star-wars-wdw-half-marathon/
The 2017 Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side Weekend is part of the annual Volunteer Ambassador Team Calendar. You will receive one commemorative piece of apparel for the event (sizes are not guaranteed) and one snack per shift (snacks are typically provided at the start of your shift. If you have special dietary needs, please plan accordingly.)
Volunteer Ambassador Team shifts and activities will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Although every effort will be made to accommodate your selection, the scheduling office reserves the right to schedule volunteers based on event needs, which includes placing volunteers on a waiting list. You will receive a confirmed volunteer schedule of the shifts for which you have been scheduled closer to the event. Confirmations will be mailed approximately 30 days prior to the event or emailed after that and will include further information on times, parking location, and other details.
