A special flight took off from Winnipeg airport on Wednesday, April 17. A group of what probably could be described as 133 extremely excited kids assembled in the wee hours of the morning to begin a journey to Disney World in Florida. I’m jealous!
From the Winnipeg Dreams Take Flight website (www.ywg.dreamstakeflight.ca): “Dreams Take Flight Winnipeg’s goal is to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for physically, mentally or socially challenged children to be “a child for a day in Disney World”. Air Canada donates the aircraft, Shell fuels the flight to Orlando, and other businesses donate their services and products. Fundraising takes place throughout the year to cover other expenses. Air Canada employees and members of the community donate their time year round to raise the funds, plan the adventure, and make this a memorable day for special children from Manitoba and Saskatchewan.”
