BENEFITING: Bert's Big Adventure

EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016

THE STORY:

Every day you hear stories about children being diagnosed with chronic or terminal illnesses…the circles around us seem to be getting smaller every day. As you can imagine, this breaks apart a flood of emotions and the families face unimaginable challenges. Their lives change in ways that many of us will never experience, much less understand. Their opportunities to have happier moments during these times are difficult to achieve – their visits to hospitals, doctors and therapies seem like a never-ending “cycle”. Bert’s Big Adventure focuses on breaking this “cycle” and providing fun, magical moments for the families in the organization throughout the year!

We are going to do our best to help Bert's Big Adventure break the "cycle" for current and future families. We're calling ourselves the "BBA Super Powers" and are going to "cycle" 350 miles from Washington DC to Pittsburgh PA from September 17-24! Breaking the "cycle" is important - not only do these families deserve a break, but they need a little sparkly magic added to their lives! Please help us make our own kind of "magic" - We need your participation to achieve our goal!

Consider this for your contribution - sort of like committing a small amount for each mile we complete (and we WILL complete all 350 miles!):

  • $0.25 per mile - $87.50
  • $0.50 per mile - $175.00
  • $0.75 per mile - $262.50
  • $1.00 per mile - $350.00

And please don't limit yourself to the amounts suggested above - these are only ideas that relate your dollars back to the miles that we'll cycle. Only contribute an amount that you are comfortable with - all donations will be greatly appreciated and will help this organization more than you know!
(The donation form provides options for $10, $25, etc., but it also offers an "Other" field so that you can define the specific amount that you'd like to donate. All donations are fully tax deductible and will be directed to Bert's Big Adventure!)

ABOUT BERT'S BIG ADVENTURE (BBA):
Mission: Established in 2002, Bert’s Big Adventure is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Check them out at http://www.bertsbigadventure.org.

Additionally, Bert's Big Adventure has other programs within the organization, two of which are the Fairy GodParent Program and Bert's Reunion Adventures. The Fairy GodParent Program ensures that each BBA child gets a special visit from a Fairy GodParent each day that they are hospitalized. Bert's Reunion Adventures offers an opportunity for all BBA families to come together to enjoy exclusive VIP events throughout the year. Sponsors and volunteers play a huge part in making these programs successful, but it's donations like yours that keep the momentum going!

Join us and help us break the "cycle"!

"You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.” – Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
