PLEASE DONATE!! Coasting for Kids at Knott's 6/9/13! Help DIS Team West!

http://www.coastingforkids.org/

I just signed up for the 5th annual Coasting for Kids fundraiser being held June 9th at Cedar Fair parks across the country, including our very own Knott's Berry Farm.

The event raises money for Give Kids the World, which just so happens to be the favorite charity of The DIS!

Quote:
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.
If you would like to join the me, sign up here: Coasting for Kids Knott's sign up and choose team: DIS Coasterpalooza 1.0

Your $25 registration fee includes admission, a t-shirt and lunch. Each participant must raise at least $75.

I would be interested if I'm in the area. Still don't know my summer plans yet. Is there a deadline to sign up?

No deadline, but a limit of 30 people at Knott's (not sure about the other Parks).

A DISer from the East Coast has challenged the West Coast!

We need to raise more money here on the West Coast! Disneyland pride is now at stake.

To do that, we need more people on the DIS Coasterpalooza 1.0 team! Join quickly as Knott's has set a limit of 30 riders.

Let's do this for Give Kids the World!

I'm totally in! Just need to make sure the life-schedule fits with it...and that I beat 29 other people before signing up. I'm so excited, you can consider this a "non-solicited bump!"

I think I have a couple members of the Disneyland podcast team convinced to join us!

I know it seems like a long time away, but I would have to have all the spots fill up where there are DISers that want to participate.

We may also have a Podcaster or two up at California's Great America in Santa Clara. Let me know if you want to participate up there and we can set up a team.
