runDisney has announced that it will not offer complimentary theme park tickets for volunteers. Here’s the message that prospective volunteers receive when signing up to help during the upcoming runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend:
Thank you for considering volunteering your time during the upcoming runDisney race season! Your passion for making a difference in the Central Florida community through our celebrated charities is truly valued. In keeping with that spirit of volunteerism, complimentary theme park tickets will not be distributed. We appreciate your support and enthusiasm for our magical running community.
Prospective volunteers need to check a box that says “I acknowledge that I am volunteering with no right to or expectation of compensation, including theme park tickets, in support of the celebrated charity.
There has been backlash on social media in response to the policy change, which typically provided volunteers with a theme park ticket for their time and effort to make the for-profit runDisney race operate smoothly.
