We Take on the #EveryRideWDW Challenge - July 24, 2019
Our Team is registered to attempt the #EveryRideWDW- a challenge to ride all rides across all four Disney World parks in one single operating day! There are several other teams registered for the challenge in July and some of the teams have joined together to raise funds for Give Kids the World Village.
When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, a family’s world turns upside down. Schedules become dominated by hospital visits and medical treatments. Free time slips away. But Give Kids The World Village gives some of that time back.
When we visited last year and was able to interact and spend time with the families it made our hearts feel full and extremely happy to be able to partner with such a wonderful organization.
Visiting families stay in storybook villas, play in Orlando’s world-famous theme parks, enjoy delicious meals and celebrate nightly events at the Village. For one amazing week, families simply laugh, play, and spend time together – and it doesn’t cost them a thing.
Give Kids The World’s mission is very special to us, so we're raising money to support the Village. Our dear friend, Rebecca Estes, and her family have been fortunate to stay at The Village more than once with her nephew, Trent. Here's what Rebecca has to say about The Village: "This place is INCREDIBLE. It serves only chronically and terminally ill kids and their families, and they hold NOTHING back! From Ice cream for breakfast to a carousel, pool, and playground that are completely wheelchair accessible, it was heaven! Trent was honored by a party every night and he was given a special star on the wall in their “Castle of Dreams”. We were given VIP access to theme parks, with no standing in lines. We laughed, we relaxed, we played. It was the gift of HOPE. The gift of FUN. The gift of “You are not alone”. The gift of one week of being together, no hospitals, no worries, and no stress. The gift of complete strangers looking at Trent and referring to him as “hero”, “champ”, and “miracle man”. The gift of feeling like our family was so special - BECAUSE of Trent."
With your help, Give Kids The World can remain a magical place where families can stay during their once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Our travel expenses are 100% paid for, so every dollar you give goes directly to Give Kids the World Village - not to us! Please help us reach our goal, and make wishes come true for children with critical illnesses.
