    "Cedar Fair Entertainment Company's best loved theme parks are partnering with Give Kids the World to host the 5th Annual Coasting for Kids fundraiser. Here's your chance to have fun marathon riding a signature thrill ride while making a difference in the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses!"

    The event takes place on June 9th at Cedar Fair theme parks across the country.

    http://www.coastingforkids.org/

    DISers on both coasts have signed up for this event...so, why not a little friendly competition? West Coast vs East Coast!

    The West Coast team will be focused on Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, but any park West of the Mississippi will do. The East Coast team will be focused on Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, but any park East of the Mississippi will do.

    Teams have been set up for both Knott's (DIS Coasterpalooza 1.0 West) and Dorney Park (DIS Coasterpalooza 1.0 East). If you don't see the DIS team or want to participate at another theme park, message me and I'll help you get started.

    Registration is $25, but that includes a t-shirt, park admission and lunch. You must raise at least $75 to participate.

    May the best team win!

    Just wanted to mention, that if you'd like to participate but cannot make it to the event, you can be a virtual rider. Check out FAQ section on the coastingforkids page.

    Also in the FAQs:

    "You do not have to stay on the coaster for the duration of the event. Breaks throughout the day are mandatory and you are more than welcome to come and go as you please. Bathroom breaks, or just breaks from riding in general, are allowed and encouraged."

    GKTW has set up Coasterpalooza 1.0 teams for ALL the Cedar Fair parks for us. So, no matter which park you're "coasting" at, you can join the team and show your DIS pride.

    Go West Coast!
