Bert's Big Adventure
is a charity
created by Bert Weiss
of radio station WWWQ-FM
(Q100) in Atlanta
, United States
The mission of the charity is to take chronically ill and physically challenged children and their immediate families on a VIP weekend trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, giving them a chance to be together as a family without being reminded of the challenges they face in their day-to-day lives.
The inaugural trip in 2003 featured 5 families who stayed at the Dolphin hotel near Epcot. Air travel was provided by the Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Thrashers.
The 2004 trip featured 7 families, who stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge near Animal Kingdom. Air travel was provided by Delta Air Lines.
