Dreams take flight

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NOUVELLES -

A group of eight chil­dren from the Ba­got­ville mi­li­ta­ry com­mu­ni­ty took part in the Dreams Take Flight pro­ject from No­vem­ber 1st to 3rd.

Wor­king with Ca­na­dian or­ga­ni­za­tions and com­mu­ni­ty groups, Dreams Take Flight al­lows di­sad­van­ta­ged or di­sa­bled chil­dren to have an un­for­get­table day. In recent years, the or­ga­ni­za­tion has re­ser­ved a num­ber of spots for mi­li­ta­ry chil­dren. The lu­cky chil­dren fly to a Dis­ney park in Flo­ri­da for an all- ex­penses paid va­ca­tion. Air Ca­na­da em­ployees have de­vo­ted their time and ener­gy to this re­war­ding ac­ti­vi­ty for se­ve­ral years, while Air Ca­na­da handles trans­por­ta­tion and pro­mo­tio­nal sup­port. Since its foun­da­tion in 1989, more than 10,000 chil­dren have vi­si­ted Dis­ney Parks th­rough Dreams Take Flight. Even if the trip is short and the young­sters ba­re­ly sleep, you can see the joy and ex­ci­te­ment writ­ten all over their faces.
