Dreams will take flight tonight!


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke is pleased to announce that four Kahnawà:ke children will be visiting Walt Disney World courtesy of Air Canada’s ‘Dreams Take Flight’ program.

The kids will leave for Orlando, Florida, aboard a special Air Canada flight during the wee hours and will arrive early tomorrow morning along with approximately 175 other children.

As always, several MCK staff, including Chiefs Gina Deer and Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer, have volunteered to accompany the kids to Trudeau Airport to see them off. The MCK has been involved in Dream Take Flight since 2004. Children are selected by Kahnawake Shakotiia’takehnhas Community services based on requirements and standards set by the Dreams Take Flight organization. Over the years, 30 children have benefitted from the program.

“Dreams Take Flight was created to bring joy to children who don’t normally get a chance to take such a spectacular – and fun – trip,” said Ken Bourque, an MCK employee and former Air Canada employee who was instrumental in getting the MCK involved. “Everything we do on this day is for the kids.  The goal is to make them feel special – and it’s been a great success in that regard over the years!”

Dreams Take Flight, which is organized by volunteer staff from Air Canada, takes physically, socially and mentally challenged children from across Canada to Disney World. The Montreal chapter has been in operation for eighteen years. There is no cost to the children or their families.

The group is expected to return late tomorrow evening.
