Give Kids The World Announces Coasting For Kids 2020

If you’ve been reading Coaster101 for any period of time, you know that we are big supporters of Give Kids The World. Located just beyond the gates of Orlando’s theme parks, Give Kids The World is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort that provides week-long, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.

Unfortunately, like the rest of the world, GKTW were not spared when dealing with the ripple effects of COVID-19. In June, the Village announced an extended temporary closure and staff furloughs due to the ongoing pandemic, and needs the support of donations more than ever so that when they do reopen, they can be ready to grant wishes for these children and their families.

This year was supposed to be the largest ever “Coasting For Kids” event in Give Kids The World’s history, with events scheduled at nearly 20 parks across the United States. However, with the current ongoing park closures and changes to operating procedures, the overall event has had to downsize. That all being said, there IS some good news to report. “Coasting For Kids” is indeed happening at at least 5 parks in 2020, and participating in an event at your local park is a fantastic way to support Give Kids The World!

Coasting For Kids will take place at the following parks on the respective dates.

August 29

September 27
