Give Kids The World’s Gingerbread Run will be returning to the Village on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at 7:30 am!

Immerse yourself in the childlike wonder and whimsy of our magical storybook Village as you run, roll or stroll a 5K through our 89-acre nonprofit resort – past snoring trees, an enchanting castle, the world’s largest Candy Land game, and more! Join in the fun on-site at the Village, or create your own unique challenge and participate virtually, from anywhere in the world!

Once you register, you will receive a kit in the mail including a limited-edition Gingerbread Run medal and race bib. Then, set a fundraising goal to earn incentives, like a commemorative Gingerbread Run t-shirt.

Engage your friends, family members and co-workers to help you reach or exceed your goal. Please remember to share your progress on social media – and don’t forget to tag us using #GingerbreadRun. Join us for the Facebook Live closing ceremony on November 6.

Proceeds from the Gingerbread Run will support Give Kids The World’s mission to provide critically ill children and their families with renewed optimism and enduring hope through transformative, weeklong wish vacations. Since 1986, more than 176,000 children and families from all 50 states and 76 countries have been welcomed to the Village. For more information, visit
