Challenge Air Kids

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:

Photos from past events here:

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

    I am the Lead Loader for team Sierra. Doug is also on my team. There are two more spots on the team right now if you want to be grouped with us. I also have a blue camera bag with a small Yavo tag on it if you want to find us.

    I will be out tomorrow. Ridiculous work hours this week makes leaving the fam alone a bad idea.

    Have fun! Turnout is looking good!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
