Brightening the Day for Hospitalized Patients

To help brighten the day of hospitalized patients, Disney’s Business Development team and Disney Volunt-EARS teamed up with runners during the Disney Princess Half Marathon to create inspirational and heart-warming cards to share with hospitalized patients at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

Disney Princess Half Marathon participants were offered a hands-on approach to community service during interactive sessions that let them create a Disney themed card and personalize the message to help a child smile.

Hundreds of runners took advantage of this opportunity and sat down to pour over the details, making the card just right for the recipient.


The colorful cards featuring Mickey and Minnie were delivered by Disney Volunt-EARS who were able to visit the Walt Disney World Resorts Grand Atrium at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer with baskets full of the cards.


Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® is the presenting sponsor and celebratory charity of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Funds raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in conjunction with this magical event will help kids grow up happily ever after. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals in the U.S. and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most.
