^If you are talking about people from the park who took pictures, I would look at the parks Twitter or Facebook pages to see if they updated throughout the day.

I just want to say how awesome TPR is. I donated a very small $25 towards the Cedar Point TPR team and was excited to get a DVD back from TPR, I only asked for one instead of the two. What I wasn't expecting was a "Bag-O-Crap" (should be Bag-O-Awesome-Stuff) with it! Robb, it was certainly a very kind gesture and something you didn't have to do and to that I say THANK YOU! This is why TPR is the best! I'm excited to look through the Tokyo Disney maps! Thanks again!

 

And congrats to all of those that participated and raised money for a great cause!!

I only saw one photo from all the ones you know he took. I didn't take any photos as my phone's battery was acting up and went from fully charged to almost nothing by mid-morning.

 

edit - I found one he took of the entire group on twitter - https://twitter.com/KingsIslandPR/status/475634577017688064/photo/1

I'm cut out of the photo, but oh well :/

 

The event was awesome! Not too many people marathoned the entire time, most got a few laps and went to other rides. It was my first visit to Kings Island, so I left for an hour and went to get credits on the other coasters, but I got 25 laps on the Racer. Will definitely be attending again next year

I was "only" able to get 80 laps on Racer this year (compared to 95 and 92 the past two years), which I believe was the 4th highest count of the day (too much lemonade at lunch ). A lot of people left for other rides. We had MORE participants this year, but FEWER people on the ride. The good news is, KI raised more money this year than last year, which is what really matters.

 

The excitement and energy on the ride progressively picked up throughout the day. I think the afternoon crew helped with that. As always, the event was a ton of fun and a huge success!

When does the registration for Coasting For Kids normally start? Also, is it people who raise the most money get to ride or is it whoever registers first? This event sounds like a ton of fun, and for a great cause. I really want to do this when it comes up!

I think registration starts around March. When I did it in 2012, you had to raise at least $25 to participate in the marathon. I think if you raised $75 or $100, you got a wristband (but they ended up giving them to everyone that day). They gave out really nice prizes for the top three fundraisers, one of which was a VIP tour for four.

The best place to start would be the first post: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1413892#p1413892

 

It has all the general information for the event. The cost to register was $25 for 2014, and then you had to raise at least $75 to participate.
