I've pledged to fundraise for Give Kids The World Village. I love this nonprofit resort because it gives dream vacations to kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Every year, 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Their lives become dominated by doctor appointments, hospital stays, and medical procedures. They miss school activities, sports, and time with friends and family.
Give Kids The World Village gives some of that time back.
For one magical week, it becomes a home-away-from-home for wish children visiting Orlando’s world-famous attractions. Families stay at its 79-acre, storybook Village, and Give Kids The World provides everything they need. No child is ever turned away, and no family ever pays a dime. In 2016, Give Kids The World hosted more than 8,000 families!
That’s why I’m Coasting for Kids. On August 16, I’ll join fellow supporters at Quassy, including the American Coaster Enthusiasts team, as we coast through a day of rides and attractions to celebrate the fun families enjoy at Give Kids The World Village.
