Frequently Asked Questions

            

Q: Who receives the services provided by Kids in Flight and where do they come from?

A: KIF exists to serve children and families with serious illnesses.  Most reside in the Cleveland and Akron areas or are served by a local hospital.  Some come to KIF from the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.  Many have cancer, heart defects, brain tumors and other life-changing illnesses and disabilities.  Recommended ages are 5-18.

Q: What services are provided by KIF?

A: Currently, the major activity of KIF is Wings of Wonder (WOW).  WOW is a fun, totally free day out at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland for families.

Q: Sounds interesting.  What happens there?

A: There is a full slate of activities, something for everyone.  A typical event has games, crafts, interactive exhibits, face painting, balloon animals, air-brush tattoos, and much more.  A catered lunch is also provided.  Past lunches have included macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, chicken tenders, various salads, desserts and soft drinks.

Q: What about the "flight" part?

A: The pinnacle event at WOW is a sight-seeing tour over the Cleveland area.  Local volunteer pilots use their own planes to take families on a 15-20 minutes flight. Children get to view their world from a different perspective and learn a little about aviation.  KIF maintains extremely high safety standards and is proud of an exemplary safety record.

Q: What else does Kids in Flight do?

A: KIF is currently working on a children's book to be published sometime in early 2015.  KIF also is always on the lookout for opportunities to expand into other geographical areas and programs.  There is consideration of a Co-Pilot program to provide interactive flight activities to individual families on a one-on-one basis.  Partnerships with organizations having similar missions are also being considered.

Q: How can I get involved?

A: KIF is always seeking dedicated individuals to serve on various committees throughout the year.  There is a major need for people with fundraising and/or grant writing experience.
WOW requires approximately 90 volunteers to be successful.  You can REGISTER NOW to help at the upcoming event. 
Monetary and in-kind DONATIONS are always welcome.
