Are you interested in helping build the self-esteem and confidence of children with specials needs? This is that event.
Since 1993, Challenge Air has enriched the lives of 30,000 children with special needs through its unique aviation programs. Challenge Air's mission reflects the life-changing impact the flight experience has on children, their families, and communities.
Here's an example of what this day can mean to some families: http://goo.gl/avPTc

Come help with loading (escorting families to/from airplanes), cheer-leading (very important cheering section for the kids), crowd directing, food service, volunteer coordinating - or any number of other activities assigned the day-of.
The event typically runs 8am - 4pm, but half-day shifts are available and encouraged if you can't stay the full day. Comfortable shoes are a must. I'll update this with weather forecast info as the date approaches. More info at http://www.challengeair.com
