Official Website: http://www.coastingforkids.org/

Hey everyone!

Theme Park Review is proud to announce that we are working with Give Kids The World to help raise money for Coasting For Kids 2013!

What is "Coasting For Kids?" It's a fundraiser hosted by Cedar Fair with the proceeds going to Give Kids The World. In short, it's riding roller coasters for a GREAT cause!

Team TPR will consist of TPR members raising money while riding roller coasters. But we need riders! And this is where YOU come in!

We need as many TPR members as possible who are willing to ride a coaster at a Cedar Fair park for six to eight hours. You'll register your donation page at the links below, and get as many of your fellow TPR members, co-workers, family, friends, FaceBook friends, Twitter followers, etc to donate to your page. Top riders who get the most donations will get some cool stuff, too!

Team TPR Members will also receive a signature banner with a direct link to your donations page along with some special prizes for you and your donors depending on how much you raise! (See below)

Below are the links to start your donations page for the Cedar Fair park you wish to be a rider at. Simply click the link, go through the registration process, make SURE you affiliate yourself with Team TPR, and then reply to this thread with a link to your donations page so we can help promote it!

There is a tax deductible, $25 registration fee that will fully be donated to Give Kids The World. That fee will also include your event T-Shirt, ERT on a roller coaster (TBD) on June 9th, food and drinks the day of the event. You do not need to worry about park admission. All participants will be required to pay the $25 registration fee and raise a minimum of $75 in order to participate.

This should be a lot of fun for a great cause, so I recommend everyone participate!

Coasting For Kids is happening on Sunday, June 9th at a Cedar Fair park near you! Register below to help raise money for Give Kids The World. You will get to ride a roller coaster for six hours. Be sure to affiliate yourself with Team TPR!

I'd love to do it this year, either Cedar Point, or waiting to see what Wonderland has for the event (crossing my fingers for Behemoth).

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?
