Cambridge ON, May 25, 2023 – Allianz Global Assistance (Allianz) is proudly sponsoring travel insurance for over 1,000 kids and volunteers who will take a trip-of-a-lifetime with Dreams Take Flight in 2023. Eight flights are scheduled throughout the year to give children facing mental, physical or social adversity a magical day at Disney – and Allianz is providing peace of mind with travel protection for everyone on board.
Many of these deserving youth were originally booked to experience this trip in 2020, and their dreams are finally taking flight this year. Debbie Robinson, Allianz’s Director of Marketing and Corporate Social Responsibility, volunteered at the Toronto flight earlier this month. She recalled:
“These kids inspire me. This is a day of so many firsts for them: trip away from family, going on an airplane, and the magic that is Disney. It’s a day filled with emotion, wonder, big smiles, and whoops of joy. It’s a day that means so much to the kids; and because of that, it means everything to me. I am beyond impressed with the Dreams Take Flight organization and the outstanding work they do to create a trip of a lifetime for these incredible kids.”
Allianz Global Assistance is committed to making a difference in the lives of children and youth in our communities. Dreams Take Flight is a remarkable initiative that brings children who face unimaginable challenges to the happiest place on Earth. Allianz is pleased to partner with a charitable organization fueled by volunteers who donate their time to help give kids a memorable experience through these trips.
“Dreams cannot thank Allianz Global Assistance enough in helping us to ensure that the children that accompany us are taken care of by providing travel insurance for them and our volunteers, should the need arise,” said Bev Watson, President of Dreams Take Flight. “There are so many different things that have to be taken care of to ensure the day goes as planned and Allianz helps lessen the load. We want to thank them in helping us make Magical Memories for Special Kids a reality once again.”
For over 10 years, Allianz has been Dreams Take Flight’s national sponsor for travel insurance and it is their honour to play a part in making a kid’s dream come true.
