About the organizations:

Brecksville-Broadview Heights Hilton Elementary School's current playground is more than 20 years old and the outdated equipment is inaccessible to all students. Over the past year, the Hilton Parent School Organization (PSO) has finalized the design and begun raising funds through the school and district communities. This new ADA accessible playground will meet the physical needs of all children, benefiting the school as well as our community! For more information:

Kids in Flight uses aviation to empower children with serious illnesses or disabilities and their families through flight experiences and educational programs. Each year, the organization hosts a special day highlighting the wonder of aviation called Wings of Wonder from Burke Lakefront Airport. Children with serious illnesses or disabilities and their families are invited to enjoy a day away from it all while taking part in games, crafts and other activities including a catered lunch and sightseeing flight over Cleveland, creating memories that will last forever. All of this is at absolutely no cost to the families. For more information:
