Knott’s Berry Farm is asking coaster enthusiasts to indulge their passion for the thrill ride and help a worthy cause and go “Coasting for Kids” on Thursday, July 29. Knott’s is looking for participants to ride the Jaguar 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.
To be a part of “Coasting for Kids” participants must raise a minimum of $50 through www.firstgiving.com/gktw by July 28. Participants can raise the money themselves, or can have friends donate to the cause. To enter, participants need to sign up for Coasting for Kids under “register for an event” on the firstgiving.com website. 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. All registered participants will receive a ticket to Knott’s Berry Farm as well as a “Coasting for Kids” t-shirt. Top fundraisers will receive Knott’s Berry Farm Beagle Bucks to spend in the park as well as Knott’s Berry Farm merchandise.
“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.
