A message from our Board President:

It is an honor to be the President of such a dedicated Board of Trustees, each of whom believes in the mission of the organization and the desire for its success. It is a pleasure to get to work with such an enthusiastic group of employees who are ready to set the world on fire for the benefit of their Executive Director and their beneficiaries, the children. My greatest joy is learning from the poise and professionalism of the Executive Director, for whom our support is unwaivering.
We have the people, we finally have enough money, and we have the skills, dedication, and drive to increase our service to our community of children with special needs. Knowing our strengths and our profound potential from the inside out, I promise you that we are on the brink of taking the 27-year old organization of goodness to the next level.
Look for us in 2020. Join us if you want to make us part of your life of giving to others.

“Just by trial and error, we were able to discover that we could use the airplane as a modality of inspiration and motivation as well as education and entertainment,” said Jeff Shaffner, a Fort Lauderdale Rotarian and member of the Board of Directors for Challenge Air. Read the full article here.
You can change the way a child sees their disability by lifting their spirits and encouraging them to believe in themselves. All it takes is a donation. Big or small–every little bit helps. We have the power to do great in the lives of these children.
