Throughout the rest of 2019, amusement parks all over the nation will host Coasting for Kids events to raise money for Give Kids the World Village. The Village is an 84-acre resort in Central Florida that fulfills wishes for critically ill children and their families. You can read more about GKTW here.

Interested participants are asked sign up at and raise at least $100 in support of Give Kids The World Village. With this donation participants will receive a T-shirt, park entrance and special Coasting for Kids day access to exclusive ride times at one of 16 amusement parks.

This first 2019 Coasting for Kids day will be hosted by Busch Gardens Williamsburg on March 23rd. Jeff Stamp expressed his excitement for this day. “I’m even more excited to visit my favorite theme park this summer now that I know my ticket will go to help a child. There’s something so rewarding about planning a fun day while also sharing Give Kids The World with my friends and family.”
