Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Give Kids The World. As most of you know, on 1/1/11 my beautiful son, Bryce, was born. This handsome little guy has changed my life forever and watching him explore his new world brightens my soul. I'm blessed to have a healthy child, but there are many kids around the world facing life-threatening illnessess. In an effort to help these kids experience the happiness every child deserves, I'll be participating in my first roller coaster marathon event on June 10, 2012!
You want to hear the details, right??
8AM-10AM Magnum XL-200
Bright and early I'll be riding Magnum XL-200 from 8AM-10AM. (That should wake me up!) Then, from 10AM-5PM, I'll be riding my favorite wooden racing coaster, Gemini! There was a time when my parents paid me $5 to ride this wooden bohemoth! And now, many years later, I'm asking you to do the same.
Whether it's $5, $50, or even more, let's help send these kids to "where happiness inspires hope."
This will be a flat donation, so no matter how long I actually last, your sponsorship will count! Don't worry, though, I'm in for the long haul.
Donating through this site is simple, fast, and totally secure. Your contribution to my personal fundraiser for Give Kids The World will make a difference in the lives of these special children. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to share this opportunity with anyone who you think might want to donate to the Village as well!
Here is some additional information about Give Kids The World:
GKTW is a magical resort where kids who face life-threatening illnesses can be kids. Since its founding in 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed over 97,000 families from all 50 states and over 68 countries. Last year alone GKTW hosted more than 6,500 families.
Give Kids The World has made a promise to never turn a child away. For 70 percent of the year however, the Village runs above 100 percent occupancy, meaning some families must lodge off property during their Wish Trip. For this reason, Give Kids The World Village is in the midst of the largest expansion project in its history.
Demand for Central Florida wishes is forecast to increase about six percent each year through 2015. To accommodate this growth the Village will need to expand to approximately 192 villas. Every person you tell about this mission, will help bring GKTW one step closer to achieving this goal.
Thank you so much!
