Dreams Take Flight
One's mind, once stretched, never regains its original dimensions.
Time Until Flight
Give a trip-of-a-lifetime. Give limitless possibilities.
Welcome to Dreams Take Flight Vancouver
Since 1993, Dreams Take Flight Vancouver has flown deserving children from BC to Disneyland. Our goal is to provide the trip of a lifetime once a year to 125 children with physical, mental and social challenges.
Air Canada donates an aircraft for the flight, and with the help of our wonderful national and local sponsors, and the hard work of all of our amazing volunteers, we will able to take another incredible group of kids to Disneyland on October 20th, 2020, (our 28th year).
With your support, we can continue to give trips of a lifetime to deserving BC children. We raise funds through corporate and private donations, charity golf tournaments, barbecues, weekly raffles and our annual Gala for Dreams.
About Dreams Take Flight
Dreams Take Flight stretches children’s minds. As poet Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”
In 1989, several Air Canada employees in Toronto planned a trip-of-a-lifetime. They flew 70 special needs children on a DC-9 aircraft to Walt Disney World in Florida.
By 1997, the Dreams Take Flight charity had expanded across Canada.
For a very long and exciting day, deserving children live an adventure in a world-renowned theme park in California or Florida. All expenses paid—thanks to sponsors and volunteers.
When they land back home, their minds are stretched to new dimensions. They see new possibilities.
