Ryan’s Going “Coasting For Kids”!

I found this link on Twitter today. I mentioned it to Ryan, and he was onboard immediately! He’ll be doing his best to raise money for this event, and with any luck he’ll be one of the 30 top fundraisers. Those top 30 will be chosen to ride Jaguar for 10 HOURS!!! He’ll be participating for Mikk’s Kid Krusaders. So exciting!


LONG BEACH — July 12, 2000 — Ryan Nelson, a Lakewood/Long Beach resident, will be participating in Coasting For Kids at Knott’s Berry Farm on Thursday, July 29.

This unique and fun event has roller coasters enthusiasts riding the Jaguar roller coaster for 10 hours to help raise funds for Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit organization that provides family vacations for children living with life-threatening illnesses. Knott’s will join with 10 other Cedar Fair parks in hosting this event making “Coasting for Kids” a national event.

“I’m definitely interested in this. I’m pretty sure there’ll be higher earners than me, but it’s worth the donations though. This event is definitely good for the charity”, said Ryan Nelson. He will be riding for Mikk’s Kid Krusaders, a family charity team started by the Nelson Family.

To be a part of “Coasting for Kids”, he must raise a minimum of $50 through http://www.firstgiving.com/ryantnelson by July 28. Participants can raise the money themselves, or can have friends donate to the cause. The top 30 fundraisers will earn a seat on the Knott’s Jaguar coaster. The marathon ride will begin at 7:00 am and will include a light breakfast, as well as a Mrs. Knott’s Chicken lunch at noon.

“Knott’s Berry Farm is proud to join with our sister Cedar Fair Parks in hosting Coasting for Kids,” said Knott’s General Manager, Marty Keithley. “Knott’s welcomes children from Give Kids The World everyday and we are committed to providing memorable and magical experiences to children with life threatening illnesses and their families. We feel that Coasting for Kids will give others the satisfaction of helping such a deserving community.”
