Why is Actress on the Run...Running?

Hello-

I'm Actress on the Run...otherwise known as Gabrielle Cross. I'm running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon this coming February and instead of just running for fun I'm running for a cause...this cause being UW American Family Children's Hospital. 3 years ago my brother and dad were in an accident and my brother was taken to AFCH...my dad to UW. While we were there, the staff made us feel like he was the only patient that was important and tried to make sure that we were all doing okay. One of our favorite nurses was named Bob (I forget his last name) and he would talk to my dad and brother about hunting and just made us feel at ease. Ever since that time I have wanted to express my thanks in a way a little more lasting then just a thank you card.

Perks to donating!

*It's the holiday season hence the season of giving!

*It'll make you feel good!

*Tax deductible!

PLUS

Anyone who donates up to $50 gets a thank you card!

Donate between $50 and $100 gets a thank you card and a picture of Disney World!

Anything above $100 gets a thank you card, picture of Disney World, and a picture of your Disney character (depending on their availability and time...it's my first time in Disney World)

Where this money goes too...

This money doesn't go to me at all. I want to make that clear. I'm paying for my way down to Florida and the race. This money is going to help the families who have to stay for an extended time at the hospital. It's to help provide comfort items, new technology, and more to this wonderful organization.
