Disney Honors Seattle Teen for Sportsmanship During Disneyland Half Marathon


Mickey Mouse and runDisney officials honor Sarah White, 16, of Seattle, WA, for her sportsmanship in giving her Mickey Medal from the 2010 Disneyland Half Marathon to a 76-year-old fellow runner.

A school-wide pep rally will be the backdrop when Disney presents the teen with a Mickey-themed race medal to replace the one she gave to Shirley Rackner of Portland, OR, who was injured in a fall just a half mile from the finish line. Rackner was unable to complete the Labor Day weekend race in Anaheim, CA to collect her medal. Rackner had surgery to attach a metal plate to her wrist and continues to recover.
