    Coasting For Kids is an event organized by GKTW and Cedar Fair at their theme parks across the country. Over the last couple of years, DISers have formed groups and had DIS meets at several of the Cedar Fair parks.

    In 2015, we had over 70 DISers sign-up at 10 (out of 11) different Cedar Fair parks across the country and raised $18,767!!

    Thought there is no official word yet, the event is typically the first Sunday in June. SAVE THE DATE!

    Registration is $25 and that basically covers admission, shirt, food, etc. In additional, you must raise a minimum of $75 in order to participate on June 5th.

    Looks like Cedar Fair may have ended its relationship with GKTW.

    This could mean some big changes to Coasting For Kids.

    I'll keep an eye out for any official word.
