2019 Coasting for Kids - Kennywood

Having FamilyFun at Give Kids the World
Having FamilyFun at Give Kids the World


Give Kids the World is a place of joy and sadness, peace and action. It is a place to run to and a place to get away from real life. It is whimsical, magical, powerful. It is a place where thousands of very special children and their families have found respite from daily lives that are so very difficult. It is place founded on tragedy. It is a place of love.

Give Kids the World is a special place for special children. Founded by Holocaust survivor Henri Landwirth, Give Kids the World is the home-away-from-home for wish kids in Orlando Florida. While it seems everyone has heard of Make-a-Wish, it is Give Kids the World that actually provides the vacation of dreams to Wish Families - families who have children with debilitating, progressive, life-threatening illnesses. For a week, families live in their own whimsical villa in a Storybook Village that provides everything to make their dreams come true. Give Kids the World provides tickets to Disney, Universal, Sea World, and more. There is entertainment, food, parties, a kid's spa, and more. Kids can take part in a giant Candy Land game or enjoy Christmas all year. It is a special place where everyone is accepted and loved.

On September 1, FamilyFunPittsburgh will be coasting for the critically ill kids who visit Give Kids the World Village, a nonprofit resort that provides them cost-free vacations.We will join fellow supporters and wish families at Kennywood at Coasting for Kids to raise funds for other Wish families at Give Kids the World.

I can’t thank you enough for helping me reach my goal, and for creating happiness and hope for children who need it the most.
