A while back, I met some wonderful people from an organization called Challenge Air. Challenge Air provides an amazing experience for children with special needs. Their Mission Statement says it all:
Challenge Air builds self-esteem and confidence of children and youth with specials needs, through the experience of flight.
Since 1993, Challenge Air has enriched the lives of children and youth with special needs through its unique aviation programs. Challenge Air’s mission reflects the life-changing impact the flight experience has on children, families, donors, sponsors and communities as a whole.
With a network of nearly 3,500 volunteers nationwide, volunteers serve as pilots, ground crew, fundraisers, planning committee members and in numerous other capacities. As Challenge Air continues to grow and add more programs across the country, its mission will remain true..... To continue to provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to special needs children and youth through the gift of flight.
A couple weeks ago, Will was fortunate enough to participate in Fly Day here in Dallas. Will had a blast - what a neat and amazing experience.
