The Give Kids The World Gingerbread Run 5K is an annual event that celebrates the joys of childhood and inspires hope for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It is a professionally timed race that can be walked, run or strolled through our 70-acre whimsical Village—past snoring trees, magic castles, the world’s largest CANDY LAND game and more.

For a child battling a life-threatening illness, the chance to smile, laugh and truly be a kid may sometimes seem like a distant dream. By raising funds for Give Kids The World, you can help make that dream possible and bring happiness and hope to children who need it most!
