KDfansite, along with the Coaster Crew and many other coaster enthusiast groups, will be taking part in the fifth annual Coasting for Kids charity event. This benefits the Give Kids the World Village in Orlando, Florida and will be held at 11 of the Cedar Fairs parks. In past years, the event has generated over $200,000 dollars, $103,000 of that was from last year alone. And $3,376.08 of THAT was from the one and only Coaster Crew! That is a fantastic number, but we can go bigger! This year, our goal is set at $6,000!
For those of you who do not know about the Give Kids the World Village, it is a 70 acre resort in Orlando, Florida. They offer children with life-threatening diseases and their families, an all expense paid trip to the Sunshine State. While staying in the village, families will get the opportunity to meet their favorite characters, visit Central Florida’s many theme parks and attractions, and even have ice cream for breakfast!
If you want to take part in this great event to help out a wonderful charity, stay tuned to our Facebook page to find out when registration opens. While you’re waiting, feel free to check out the GKTW website, www.givekidstheworld.com for more information on the village, and to read letters from some of the families they’ve helped. So, mark your calendars for June 9th and sign up for Team Coaster Crew! Remember to let all of your friends and family know so that they can donate to this fantastic cause.
