‘Coasting For Kids’ At Cedar Point
Coaster riding takes on a new meaning on July 24th at the Sandusky, Ohio amusement park. The "Coaster for Kids" promotion helps raise money for "Give the Kids the World", a Florida-based nonprofit organization that provides week-long vacations for children with life threatening illnesses. In the two years that Cedar Point has sponsored it, they have raised more than $27,000. Here's how it works: The top 60 guests who raise the most money in pledges will have the opportunity to ride on the park's legendary Gemini and Magnum XL-200 roller-coasters for up to nine hours. A roller-coaster lovers dream come true. Participants will receive a complimentary breakfast and lunch, event t-shirt and free admission to the park. The top fundraiser wins a four-hour VIP tour for four, second place will receive four tickets to HalloWeekends and a behind-the-scene tour at Cedar Point, and third-place will earn a "Give Kids the World" bag, filled with gifts from the "Give Kids the World" village.
