New York, New York/ United States- August 12, 2014

Kids of Courage, the world’s largest and most sophisticated medically supervised travel and year round program, is traveling to San Diego this week for its annual summer trip with over 400 participants. In view of the recent war and constant threat of rocket attacks, Kids of Courage decided to offer respite and travel to some of the sickest and disabled children stuck in the targeted cities for a nine day West Coast adventure followed by a weekend in New York. The organization will be travelling with their full medical staff including physicians, nurses, paramedics and a child psychologist for support of the campers. Many of the Israeli children have been confined to shelters or close confine living for the last month due to their mobility restrictions when rocket warnings come in.

Paralyzed former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand will be seeing the group off at Newark Airport on the morning of Wednesday, August 13. As a source of inspiration, hope and perseverance for so many, Eric will speak to the group of 140 campers, many from the tri-state area, in what is bound to be an emotional gathering.

While in San Diego, the group will visit Seaworld, the San Diego Zoo, Legoland, adaptive jet skiing, San Diego Safari and much more. Kids of Courage provides medically supervised air travel, 1:1 camper:counselor, resort hotel stays, handicap accessible ground transportation andcreates memories to last a lifetime.

Kids of Courage offers services free of charge to all children and young adults including medically supervised travel, adaptive sports and skiing, sporting events and big brother/sister programs, Sunday Fundays, concerts and year round travel.
