Special Day for Special Kids

The USO of Hampton Roads and Kings Dominion will host the annual “USO-Kings Dominion Day” for special needs children on June 19, 2009.

Each year families from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, and Marines with children who have severe medical conditions (terminally ill, chronically ill, life threatening, or wheel chair bound) are provided free park admission, a group picnic, and special medical services at the park.

The program is designed to provide a respite for the families who due to cost, time, and mostly medical reasons are unable to visit recreation and theme parks. USOHR, Kings Dominion, and the Joint Services EFMP Committee make it possible for them to enjoy a family day together.

This event began over 15 years ago. Each year 20 to 25 families from each branch of the service bring their special needs child for a day they will always remember.

To see if you qualify for this wonderful event call your EFMP Coordinator.
