Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Walt Disney.
"Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought."
"Disneyland is like Alice stepping through the Looking Glass, to step through the portals of Disneyland will be like entering another world."
"I am not an economist, but things are not as bad as they seem. I have a great deal of confidence in our future."
"You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
"In bad times and good, I have never lost my sense of zest for life."
And of course everyone's favorite quote: "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."

I am running in support of The Dream Team Project, which raises money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. The number one wish of the seriously ill children that Make-A-Wish serves is to visit Walt Disney World. It is the goal of The Dream Team Project to help those wishes come true, so that a family can have some happy memories during a difficult time.
I have been very fortunate to visit WDW many times and on several of those trips I have seen these kids having their wishes fulfilled. Let me tell you, if you are there when they get to see Mickey Mouse or Cinderella for the first time and their face lights up, you can't help but shed a few tears. They are tears of sorrow but also tears of joy.
Would you please help me reach my goal of $1000.00 to help these kids?
I am asking you to sponsor me with a per-mile donation:
$10.00 per mile = $131.00
$7.50 per mile = $98.25
$5.00 per mile = $65.50
$2.50 per mile = $32.75
$1.00 per mile = $13.10
or any other amount that you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Donations may be made by credit card via The Dream Team Project's firstgiving.com page at http://firstgiving.com/dwtdreamteam . Please include a note in the comments section that the donation is for Lori Burke's Half Marathon Sponsorship.
Thank you for helping me make children's wishes come true and supporting me as I make one of my dreams come true: to complete this half marathon in honor of these children.

My second favorite redhead is Kim Possible. How can you not like a girl that can kick any guys butt. I wish I could have done half the things she can do when I was 16. Except for kiss Ron- no thanks! A little too geeky for me.
My daughter likes to think she can do anything but I like to tell her that she can't. Unless she wants to dress as Kim for Halloween, then it's ok.
