This weekend, the family arrives after their cross-country trek. The Cobb family has been walking for nearly a year, nearly 4,000 miles. The Cobbs are walking from Disneyland in Anaheim, California to Disney World in Orlando.

WHAT: “Cobbs In The Kingdom”

WHO: ALL friends are welcome to join them for a “Father’s Day” of magic and fun!


WHERE: The Cobb Family will enter the Magic Kingdom to personally commemorate their 10 month long, 4,000 mile journey to honor their 8 year old daughter, Julia, who passed away on the last day of her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World on October 29, 2013. Her “Can” attitude and her bright spirit inspired her family to “do the impossible.” You can find the Cobb family in/around City Hall (Magic Kingdom) at 11:30 AM.

NOTE: Please join us later at the front of Cinderella’s Castle at 4:00PM as we celebrate Ju and her favorite scripture, “I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” -Phil. 4:13 We want everyone who loved Ju to be together at 4:13 PM.
