Registration open for Give Kids the World charity events at IAAPA
POSTED 03 Jul 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
IAAPA has opened registration for its annual charity events supporting Give Kids the World Village – the cost-free resort for children with life threatening illnesses.

Entering its 23rd year in partnership with IAAPA at the organisation’s annual expo in Orlando, events to support Give Kids the World in 2017 raised more than US$123,000 (€105,000, £93,000) for the charity.

On Sunday 11 November, ahead of the show’s official launch, IAAPA will host its 16th annual International Charity Golf Tournament at the Falcon's Fire Golf Course. There is a registration rate of US$200 (€170, £150) per golfer, with proceeds from the event going to the charity.

On the same day, IAAPA will host its 8th annual Motorcycle Ride, with industry colleagues meeting up for a mass drive through of the Orlando area at a cost of US$100 (€84, £76) per person.

For visitors spending the week exploring the trade show floor, they can opt for some outdoor exercise on 15 November, with a 5k run or 1k walk, journeying through Give Kids the World Village itself. Registration fees are US$35 (€30, £26) for individuals or US$30 (€25, £23) for teams of five or more people.

Last year Henri and Pamela Landwirth were inducted into the IAAPA Hall of Fame for their work in creating and continuing to run Give Kids the World over the last 30 years. Henri, who founded Give Kids the World, died earlier this year aged 91. Through his work, the charity has welcomed more than 150,000 families since its foundation.
