Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm participating in a Coasting for Kids event at Dorney Park on Sunday, July 24th, 2011 , to benefit GIVE KIDS THE WORLD.
GKTW is a village in Orlando where Make-A-Wish kids and their families can stay while visiting the Orlando parks as part of their wish. It was created when a little girl with leukemia had made a wish to visit Disney, but sadly died before Make-A-Wish was able to get the accommodations made. It became apparent that there was a need for a place that was ready-made for accommodating these special needs kids and their families so wishes can be granted more easily and more timely.
GKTW provides a magical vacation place for these kids and families to escape for a while from all the doctors and the hospitals that become a part of their regular routine. And as you can imagine, it takes money to keep these villages up to date with the latest accommodations and technologies.
So, I'll be riding a roller coaster (Steel Force) at Dorney Park over and over again for the kids! (Finally, my coaster riding can help others! lol )
