Pixie Dust Wishes is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that grants Disney wishes to children and individuals with disabilities throughout the Centre region and throughout Pennsylvania. Pixie Dust Wishes was founded in State College, Pennsylvania in 2017. We are excited for our annual family fun event which includes a 5K run, "mile" fun walk that includes trick or treating and is all abilities inclusive, and family Disney Halloween festival called Race to Neverland held at Tudek Park in State College, Pennsylvania on October 15th, 2022. Registration for both the 5K and the fun mile walk.
Pre-registration by 11:59PM EST on September 22, 2022 guarantees a T-shirt if you signed up for one AND lunch. There will be a limited supply of shirts after this date. Registration and check in will begin at 8:00 AM and will last until 8:45 AM on October 15th. The 5K will begin at 9:00 AM after our brief introduction.
Following the race, Pixie Dust Wishes will be announcing our 20th and 21st WISH RECIPIENT!
We will walk together for our fun mile walk with TRICK OR TREATING after the wish recipient has been announced!
The Disney Halloween festival includes Disney Halloween themed arts and crafts, games, basket raffle, silent auction, special guests, and trick or treating for the fun walk. The silent auction and basket raffle will be ongoing from 8am and winners will be announced by 11:30 AM. Our VERY POPULAR Disney themed COSTUME CONTEST will return again this year so if you choose to do so, come dressed as your favorite Disney character. We will have prizes for the best costumes, and our photographer will be taking pictures of all of our costume participants to show the Disney magic of The Race to Neverland to everyone. Our costume contest will be awarded in three categories: individual, couple, group (3 or more people) with an honorable mention for each category as well.
Small children in strollers are permitted to participate for free UNLESS you want your child to have a t-shirt and/or lunch, and then the regular registration fee will be required. Children under 5 who are walking are permitted to participate in the fun walk for free as well UNLESS you want your child to have a t-shirt and lunch, and then you will need to register them for the walk.
Participants will receive a meal ticket upon as part of registration. There will also be a light snack and water for our runners after the race in addition to a boxed lunch!
