What are the BOGP Lizards?
The Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards are the show’s running squad! We are all Disney friends supporting each other to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Runners. Walkers. Waddlers and Cheer Squad. The one thing we all have in common is that we are all Lizards!
How did the Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards come about?
It was really just a joke actually, at first. One of our listeners wrote in about how they loved the little lizards that are seen running all around Walt Disney World property. At the around the same time, we were setting up our running squad and somehow the joke was made that we should choose the Lizard as our mascot for our running team because those lizards are fast and agile. Needless to say, the name stuck, and thus the BOGP Lizards were born!
How can I join the Lizards running squad?
The Lizards can be found via a private Facebook page…which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bogplizards/ The page is really a support system for all. It’s proof that no matter what your skill level is with getting active…whether you are training for a 5k or a marathon….we’re there to cheer you through it all! If you’d like to join, just send out a request to the page and someone will approve you shortly after submitting your request.
I’ve seen the BOGP Lizard running gear. I want to purchase
running swag…but how?
If you’ve been to a Disney race, (or sometimes even a hometown race), then you may recognize that bright yellow color with the BOGP Lizard moniker emblazoned on it! If you’d like to show your support for the Lizards during your run, we do offer shirts/bondi bands/visors/and more periodically.
For those who are looking to purchase actual running gear, more information can be found via our Facebook Group. These orders are only put together at certain times of the year, usually right before runDisney race weekends, so be on the lookout. There’s nothing like seeing a highlighter yellow shirt running around everyone’s town or running in a Disney race.
For those who may be looking to share your support of the BOGP Lizards in other ways, we do offer other merchandise for sale, like phone cases, laptop bags, mugs, pillows, notebooks, and more. You can find those items for sale in the Be Our Guest Podcast store.
Is there a charitable aspect I can take part in?
The BOGP Lizards do raise money for the podcast’s favorite charity, Give Kids The World. You are in no way obligated to raise money, nor is there a set goal that must be collected. This is all voluntary and you can choose to raise money for any race to reach your target. We have our team page which allows you to create your own link that you can post to your own social media accounts to help you raise money. We thank those of you who choose to help in this cause!
In addition, each year, the Be Our Guest Podcast holds a 12 hour live show raising money for Give Kids the World. While there are no dues necessarily for being a part of the Lizards, we do ask that, if you can, you make any size monetary donation during this annual event.
