Some Guests have even used walking around Disney Parks as a weight loss tactic because they get so many steps in every time they visit!
Now, people who wish to support the war effort in the Ukraine can do so by doing nothing more than walking around their favorite Disney theme parks.
The Conqueror Virtual Challenges is offering a “Stand With Ukraine” challenge that donates money to humanitarian organizations for every step you take — that adds up quickly if you’re taking 20,000 steps per day at Magic Kingdom!
You can also, however, participate by cycling, swimming or running if you’re not currently visiting a Disney theme park!
Details about the challenge read:
You can contribute to support the International Red Cross and Save the Children Ukraine that help civilians caught up in the midst of war or fleeing Ukraine.
This challenge is digital-only (no medal) and highlights the stunning architecture and major landmarks of Kyiv, in order to honor this incredible city.
By signing up, you will get access to:
9 Virtual postcards
Full Coverage Street View
Custom completion certificate
The Conqueror Challenge also provided Inside the Magic with the following details regarding this particular challenge:
People sign up for their entry and they donate directly. They don’t have to finish the challenge and can choose the type of physical exercise (not just walking).
