Coasting for Kids on National Roller Coaster Day

Coasting for Kids returned to the Mid-Atlantic for a special National Roller Coaster Day edition! Coasting for Kids is a special celebration to thank all those who committed to fundraising at least $100 for the Give Kids the World Village. Six Flags America generously hosted all those who achieved the goal last Friday. Every attendee enjoyed first ride access on Firebird, newly remodeled for this year with floorless trains. They also enjoyed admission to the park, exit passes, a meal voucher, and Coasting for Kids swag.

The event raised over $3600 to support the cost to run the Give Kids the World village, which is more than half the cost to send a family to the village for a week.

Thank you to all who donated to support this amazing charity! Did you know that you can also give your time to the village? The next time that you are in Kissimmee, Florida, give a few hours to help make these vacations for families of critically ill children extra special. Check out some of the jobs you can do there like drive the train and scoop ice cream!
