“Participants are invited to pull up a chair at the family table and join the family Madrigal on a journey to discover what else they can do when they push through the surface pressure! What better way to celebrate an accomplishment, like crossing that coveted finish line, than with good food and good company,” leaders said on the runDisney blog.
