The only thing better than being a kid is perhaps being a kid, again.
A Kid Again, a nonprofit organization which exists to foster hope, happiness and healing for families raising kids with life-threatening illnesses through fun-filled group activities and events, will have its 25th annual outing at Kings Island on Sunday.
The Kings Island adventure is an incredible day for A Kid Again families, allowing them to give illness a giant timeout. It’s an opportunity for sick kids to get out of the hospital, grab their brothers and sisters, their moms and dads, and come to Kings Island for the greatest day of the year – the day they can be a kid again.
One of the most important things about A Kid Again is they do these adventures for the entire family. It’s about the sick child who spends a lot of time in the hospital, the siblings who feel left out of the family because the parents are focused and concerned about the ill child, and it’s about the parents who are able to find connections with other parents who understand what they’re going through. Adventures like the one at Kings Island gives them an opportunity to be with and talk to other families, get advice and know that they’re not alone.
In a year that has seen more tricks than treats, a traditional Halloween Trick-or-Treat is out of the question for families who have immunocompromised children and are at high risk because of COVID-19. The COVID-friendly Tricks And Treats Fall Fest event at Kings Island offers the more than 600 A Kid Again children and family members from Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton and Indiana expected to attend the outing a safer alternative and a day full of fun, laughs and memories.
Earlier this year, a first riders’ event for the new Orion giga coaster raised more than $160,000 for A Kid Again.
More information about A Kid Again can be found on its website.
