T2S

Sometimes, families on the road to healing need foster and adoptive care assistance. When T2S was asked to share our activities with kids living in change, we immediately turned to our friends to see if they could please donate experiences that make a positive difference to those in need.

In 2016, eight kids from families working with the St. Louis, MO. based  Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition will have their wish for excitement and adventure granted.​

St. Louis Soaring Association | THE RIGHT STUFF SOAR PLANE FLIGHTS!

Helped along by the experts from the St. Louis Soaring Association and knowledgeable T2S student fliers, four kids will experience an exciting day of soar plane flying. Adventurers will receive a first-hand introduction to pilot culture and airfield operation best practices. We'll show them an insiders view of how aircraft are stored, moved about, inspected and prepped for flight.

Our guests will spend time learning cockpit basics, glider dynamics and proper in-flight communication techniques. Before take-off, seasoned St. Louis Soaring Association pilots will show the kids how tow planes and gliders work together to keep everyone safe...and then it's time to step into the big silent birds, strap on your seat-belt, close the hatch and fly 3,000 feet in the sky!

Gateway Motorsports Park | START YOUR ENGINES FOR A DAY AT THE RACES!

The need for speed continues when four more kids and accompanying adults receive VIP commemorative keepsake admission passes, event seating and family parking to the Gateway Motorsports Park! First, they'll see USAC drivers hone their racing skills as they compete to claim the checkered flag!

Then, once the smoke clears and the bright lights come on...its time for the Main Event!  Kids will be amazed at the mighty display of horsepower that can only come from the powerful engines of the NASCAR Truck Series! Racers from across the country will storm the banked oval at speeds of well over 100 MPH in pursuit of a Championship!

​In between all this action, kids will have VIP access to the pits to meet star drivers, take pictures and get autographed hero cards! What a night!

Do you know exactly what to do should a family member, classmate or colleague stop breathing from cardiac arrest? Don’t allow yourself to be powerless to react…please join Ticket 2 Success, as we partner with certified Contemporary Life Saving Training experts prepared to teach students, parents and care-givers hands-on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (“CPR”) and the correct use of an Automated External Defibrillator (“AED”). Even if you learned CPR years ago, the results of medical research have fully updated this critical procedure…hands-on CPR is today’s preferred method. Advancements in technology now make portable AED machines available in public spaces all across the country. These machines make responding to someone in need, easier now, more than ever! Knowledge is power…and knowing how to save a life is the perfect combination of Literacy, Leadership and Empowerment. With just a few hours of training, you can have the confidence to know how to react in life threatening situations.

Class size is limited to 25 participants, so RSVP no later than April 4, 2015 to brlee@t2success.org.

T2S graciously thanks Contemporary Life Saving Training. To learn more, visit www.ECSInstitute.org.
