Dream of Wings program gives sick children hope

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Some children dream of becoming pilots; others dream of living just one more day. The Dream on Wings program combines those dreams to help sick children in need of a lift of spirits.

The 117th refueling wing hosted the annual Dream on Wings program this morning.

It was created to give children who are facing serious illnesses a day to put aside their worries and allow them to have a day filled with flying and fun.

Each child and their family were treated to a flight around Birmingham.

The sick kids say they're thankful for the volunteers there.

"They're really generous, extremely, even on a kinda cloudy day like this," Zachary Adam-Sorenson said.

The children also got to enjoy games, refreshments, and music.
