Make A Wish Foundation

Every year we help out this organisation which look after the terminaly ill kids. They spend a day on Mt Tamborine visiting many fun places and fulfilling some of their dreams. The kids arrive in style in these old cars and we explain to them about Hang gliding and paragliding. There was no wind on this day so all we could do was put them in the harness and lift them up in the air to simulate the flying feeling. There were a few of us that then took off the mountain and showed them what it is all about. After the flying they finished the day with a big BBQ at the local showgrounds with a motorbike jumping demonstration. The kids left the mountain with grins from ear to ear..
