The Dare to Dream Team was originally slated to head to St Francis Wisconsin to perform at Deer Creek Intermediate School. But it seems that once one door opens, many more follow and it soon turned into a tour of 4 events in 48 hours! Starting off The Morning Blend Show on Friday morning with Scott Fisher of Gift of Wings Kites, our hosts Linda and Neil Thomas, we were able to share our message ! To view the segment go to: The Morning Blend
Then we headed off to perform the Dare to Dream Program with students, the school board, the Police Chief, the Fire Chief and the Mayor of St. Francis all gathered to share in the fun! Principle Mary Garcia-Galvez learned to fly indoor kites and so did many others! The feedback from this program has been fantastic! It is an opportunity to share the Dare to Dream concept with kids, teach them how to speak out against bullying, share Epilepsy Awareness, all the while having fun with indoor Kites!
Our day was far from over! It was time to head to Milwaukee to the American Hockey League Playoffs! The Admirals invited Connor to be the performer at first Playoff game of the AHL Finals! Lots of details to work out, and there was plenty to be done before the first drop of the puck! It truly was amazing to be a part of this event. A big thank you to Scott Fisher of Gift of Wings Kites for making this possible and to the Admirals Hockey Team for inviting Connor!
After a good nights sleep We headed to Wheaton Park Illinois to join Scott Fisher, Chicago Fire Kite Team and many others at the Go Fly a Kite Event! We were so happy to be joined by the Chicago Epilepsy Foundation there ! We look forward to returning to Wisconsin in September and working with everyone again!
