Disneyland Resort Cast Members Slim Down for a Cause

When you work at a Disney theme park you don’t have to look far for a chance to make a difference in the community as well. This year Disneyland Resort Cast Members are shedding pounds, making healthier choices and feeding the hungry in Orange County this summer, all as part of the Disneyland Resort Weight Loss Challenge for Charity. The Resort is partnering with the Orange County Food Bank to administer the challenge, during which a pound of food will be donated for every pound lost by a Cast Member.

The Challenge launched this week, with official weigh-in locations throughout the Resort confidentially recording the starting weight of participating Cast Members. Midway through the Challenge, there will be an additional official weigh-in for tracking progress. The program will culminate with final results being recorded during the week of September 14. As an extra benefit, one additional pound of food will be donated to the Food Bank for every participant who enrolls in the Challenge.

“The Weight Loss Challenge is a great opportunity for our Cast Members to do something positive for themselves and for others,” said Kristin Nolt Wingard, senior vice president, public affairs and an executive champion for health and wellness at Disneyland Resort. “While we lose, the Orange County Food Bank wins.”
