Hello, I will be participating in Coasting for Kids again this year (4 time veteran) at Kennywood, along with my girlfriend Kylie (she'll be signed up soon). I really love GKTW and was fortunate enough to volunteer last September for a couple days. What an amazing experience. Any help will be appreciated, of course! I really think Team TPR can win top team at Kennywood!

The park page needs help reaching it's goal it is 45% percent of it's Max Goal. Can you help donate on the Frontier City link in the above in Jedimaster11227's post. You can donate as low as $1 dollar. Thank You!

Girlfriend just signed up for Coasting for Kids at Kennywood. This is her 2nd year doing it and she volunteered at the Village last year and loved, loved, loved it! If anyone wants to give her an initial budge, I'm sure that would be appreciated! Looking forward to seeing Team TPR on September 1st (crossing my fingers for Steel Curtain).

Greetings, Team TPR!! First and foremost, I want to apologize, as my initial intention was to be way more active in this thread about the awesome revival of this FANTASTIC event!! Alas, life very much got in the way of that, but I'm here now to hopefully post frequently and drum up support for the final event of the bunch - Coasting for Kids at Kennywood!! :b

I want to give a huge THANK YOU first to Robb and Elissa for again partnering up with this tremendous charity! GKTW is truly phenomenal! Also, a BIG thanks as well to those who already participated at some of the other parks while waving the Team TPR Banner! In particular, I'm referring to:

  • Andrew at Legoland Florida ($101 raised!) :)
  • Bert and Jake, who ROCKED SFFT! (An amazing combined $2,202 raised!!) =)
  • Emily and Michael at Story Land (with a healthy $408 raised combined!) :)

You riders are all FANTASTIC!! THANK YOU!! And now, we've reached the final event on this year's schedule, where Team TPR has its BIGGEST representation! As Taylor pointed out above, Team TPR is now within $70 of the TOP TEAM!!! :b Absolutely AWESOME!! Thus far, Team TPR has already raised $2,327 for GKTW!! That means Team TPR as a whole has raised over $5,000 during Coasting for Kids! Folks, that's enough to fund a wish!!

Also impressive is the response that has poured out in general for Kennywood's event! With a staggering $27,126 raised (and still climbing!), the support has been remarkable! In addition, although the Top Fundraiser has pulled away with an insane total, I think it would be amazing for TPR if members from our team took spots #2 and #3! And right now, that's TOTALLY possible!! Taylor currently has a super impressive total of $724, good for #3, just behind the #2 fundraiser! My own fundraising has also been productive thus far, showing a respectable $577, currently good enough for 5th on the top fundraiser list! Adding in my offline donations of $65, that jumps my total to $642, which puts me right in the mix with Taylor to get those two spots! Can we do it??

Well, that's where you fine folks at TPR come in! Let's grab those #2 and #3 positions, along with being the Top Fundraising Team at the event that is raising a ton for GKTW!! And shoot, let's go for it, and try to hit $6,000 raised in total across the parks TPR has participated in while we're at it!!

I know that personally I would greatly appreciate any support any of you may want to throw to my fundraising page here: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1282888&pg=personal&fr_id=1886

Here's Taylor's page as well: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1017239&pg=personal&fr_id=1886

You can also support any of the Kennywood Team TPR members here: http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?pg=team&fr_id=1886&team_id=6872

I'll try to keep this topic updated as we enter the final stretch run! GO TEAM TPR!!
I would rather be off riding coasters!

Steel Top 5 - (1) Steel Vengeance (2) Skyrush (3) Fury 325 (4) Millennium Force (5-tie) Phantom's Revenge (5-tie) Maverick
Wood Top 5 - (1) El Toro (2) Phoenix (3) Voyage (4) Ravine Flyer II (5) Shivering Timbers
