Here is the list of 2024 runDisney Springtime Surprise Charities. You can be a runDisney charity runner for all race weekends.
There are a few ways to runDisney (even when a runDisney race sells out!) but the one that speaks to a runner’s heart is going to be running with a charity.
Disney World partners with a variety of charities every year at each race, so you’re bound to find one that you want to support.
Here’s the runDisney Springtime Surprise Charities List 2024 to help you decide which is your best fit.
This list is being updated as we learn more, so please check back for additional details.

Advice For Raising Funds From A Former Charity Runner
First of all, before we get to the charity runner list, I want to suggest one big tip.
Pick the charity that resonates the most with YOU and your family. That may not be the one with the most perks or the lowest fundraising option, but it will be the one that means the most to you.
I ran for a few years with the Princess Half Marathon Presiding Partner, Children’s Miracle Network, in honor and memory of my son, Jacob.
He spent a lot of time in various Children’s Miracle Network hospitals over his short 4 years and I wanted to make sure I gave back to them a bit of what they gave to me. Which were peace, hope, and love.
A little fundraising helped pay back that “debt” I felt I owed them and made the race weekend more meaningful than I’d ever imagined.
Because my family and friends knew my story and my passion, the fundraising was generally easy as they, too, wanted to be part of the process.
So. Before you check out the runDisney Springtime Surprise charities list, try to decide on why you want to runDisney for a charity.
