The fundraising, the riding with friends, to meeting wish families at the park, and hearing their stories. Everything together made this event what it was.
But I do hope that GKTW gets to work something out. I just feel bad for the fact that the amount of $ that GKTW won't be getting (directly from this type of event). I mean TeamTPR over the years have donated amazing amounts of $ to this cause, and to potentially not have that, makes me a little sad.
Thank you GKTW for a great event, and I look forward to what you come up with.

"Cedar Fair's relationship with GKTW is changing. The company will not host Coasting For Kids this year, and is instead taking on an exciting new reunion event for the village at a number of its parks. Cedar Fair's participation has helped raise more than $600,000 since 2009, and we're grateful for their leadership in getting the event off the ground. Their new role will provide closer interaction with wish families, and of course they will continue to participate in the Village's Passport program.
That means that this year's event will take place at different parks, with the potential to go global. One park has already committed, and we're having discussions to do more. The most exciting change is that this will no longer be a one-day event."

In years past, you’ve joined us for a day of heart-pounding roller coaster rides that supported Give Kids The World Village and the kids we serve. We can’t thank you enough for your help, and that’s why we want you to be the first to know about the return of Coasting for Kids! This year, we’re thrilled to introduce a bigger, better Coasting for Kids that lets you make an even greater impact.
You’re invited to join us for an exclusive Coasting for Kids event at some truly great amusement parks! This goes beyond roller coasters and includes access to any of the participating parks’ rides and attractions. Best of all, your special day out raises the money we need to give children with life-threatening illnesses and their families magical weeks in Orlando, FL, the theme-park capital of the world.
So sign up for Coasting for Kids, start a team, and share your story as you fundraise. Visit our website to learn more and see the parks that’ll be part of this terrific event. Let’s make this the best Coasting for Kids yet!
