Dreams Take Flight Calgary

Some kids are facing physical challenges, while others are facing social challenges and some have multiple challenges. Most kids have never been away from a parent, many have never been on an airplane, and none of them have ever been to Disneyland. Each of these children, at one time or another, has cried out ? ?why me? or ?what did I do to deserve this? or ?it?s not fair?. All funds raised in Calgary will go to the Calgary chapter and benefit Southern Alberta kids.
