Newsies to Run Around the World!
By Bryan Denton
New York – A group of Newsies will be heading to Orlando, Florida later this week to begin a run around The World to spread the message about their successful New York City strike against unfair child labor wages “Once and For All”.
The group of 5 Newsie ambassadors will be “Carrying the Banner” to countries such as Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada where they hope to raise awareness as well as sample some of the local cuisine.
The Newsie representatives who hail from New York, New Jersey and Boston say that their hope is that “The World Will Know” how “wrongs will be righted, if we’re united”. They want to encourage others around the world to stand up for what they believe in and “Seize the Day!”.
The Newsies run around the (Disney) World campaign will kick of this Friday morning, January 10th at 5:30am with the runDisney 10k. Even with the predicted high temperatures they look forward to the challenge and hope to meet other runners who share their passion along the way.
All media inquiries and photo op requests for the running Newsie ambassadors should be directed to their PR contact via Twitter @dnardi710.
**If you’ve never seen the movie Newsies this post probably makes no sense to you whatsoever. Apologies for that, but you really should run out and get a copy and watch it ASAP!**
Cutest photo and post ever! Can’t wait to see your group!
Thanks Pam! I’m a little worried that we’re all going to overheat in these costumes, but it’ll be totally worth it : )
OMG newsies is the greatest movie ever!! Love the post!
Haha YES! LOVE NEWSIES! I totally nerded out writing this post : )
Adorbs!! Can’t wait to see your Newsies costumes!
Thanks Karla! Wishing it was going to be about 20 degrees cooler, but oh well! Can’t wait to see your costumes, they’re always great!
Ahh! I hadn’t checked the weather yet! It’s like last year all over again. I was debating a costume that requires a wig, but planned a wigless backup too. Backup costume it is! I just hope it doesn’t rain.
Love this 🙂 Can’t wait to see us all together finally!
Ha, nice! I’ll keep a lookout for y’all! I hope I get approval for a photo! 😉
Consider yourself pre-approved! : )
I know I said this already, but I LOVE this costume idea! So many Newsies references to make, so little time! (BTW, one of my Christmas presents from Doug was to see the play again…so excited!)
yay! Jason and I keep talking about going to see it again too, I loved it!
Holy cow, it’s a miracle, Pulitzer is dying, Weasel he’s crying.
It makes me happy that there are others out there that get this…
the time is now, and the winds will blow, and our ranks will grow and THE WORLD WILL FEEL THE FIRE AND FINALLY KNOW (how amazing Newisies is)!
This is amazing! I’ll be cheering you on all the way from CA! Thanks for carryin the banner and best of luck on your 10k!
