Fly Day on October 7, 2017 at Atlanta Regional Falcon Field
Challenge Air for Kids and Friends, a national children’s nonprofit organization, is recruiting volunteers, pilots and special needs children, ages 7-21, for it’s “Fly Day” event.Challenge Air builds the self-esteem and confidence of children and youth with special needs through the experience of flight.
If you have a friend, a family member, a grandparent, or you are a parent of a child with special needs, you undoubtedly know the bigger challenges that life challenges you to overcome every day. There may be days where they might feel all alone in their struggle. Maybe they are so busy taking care of a child’s needs, in addition to the rest of the family, that they have not had the time to seek the encouragement that they need. Whether you know someone raising a child with various physical, developmental or emotional challenges, or you yourself are facing those challenges, we want to invite you to participate in an event where we hope you will find a few moments of joy and comfort with Challenge Air.
