Greg Warmoth Reindeer Run raises money for families battling childhood cancer

ORLANDO, Fla. — It was a wonderful, snowy morning at SeaWorld for this year’s Greg Warmoth Reindeer Run.

For the runners, joggers and walkers, who took part in the three-mile route through the theme park, it was even complete with fake snow flurries.


It was a capacity crowd for the event, which raises money for pediatric and bone marrow transplant programs at AdventHealth for children.

The course carried participants through SeaWorld’s wintery, watery wonderland and a sea of holiday trees all to the sound of holiday bells.

Greg Warmoth, along with Santa and Mrs. Claus were on hand, as well as 97-year-old runner Grace Nolan.

“I do this so I can come meet you, but I also think what you’re doing is wonderful. For the children and the hospital is amazing, you’re a wonderful person,” Nolan said.
