Midview Boys Basketball raises $1,945 for Kids in Flight
This January, Midview Boys Basketball one again participated in a Kids in Flight 3-point Charity Challenge.  When the three-pointers stopped falling and the donations were tabulated Midview raised $1,945 for the cause.
 
Founded in 2003, Kids in Flight is a non-profit organization that uses aviation-related activities and airplane rides to give children with serious illnesses or disabilities an opportunity to escape by soaring above the crises, complications and struggles. Through a variety of exciting, fun-filled programs and the thrill of flight, children and their families share unique bonding experiences that will be remembered forever. 
 
Everyone knows that from the air, objects below appear smaller. For children fighting serious illnesses, the escape and excitement of flying can make their problems seem smaller as well, giving them a new perspective on their struggles. It is because of this that there is a sense of hope, determination and perseverance that is the essence of Kids in Flight and all who are involved.

Thank you to all the players, families and sponsors for their kindness and generosity in helping to make a child’s day a little brighter!
