Fifty children dealing with difficult medical conditions got a first-class sendoff to Disney World as part of the Kidd's Kids Program on Thursday.
Kidd's Kids and Southwest Airlines team up each year to send the children and their families on an all-expenses paid vacation.
The annual trip was started by the late Kidd Kraddick, the legendary radio personality who died suddenly in July 2013.
The charity he started to take chronically or terminally ill children to the Florida theme park vowed to keep his legacy going after his death. Last year, a record 61 children walked the purple carpet and boarded a Southwest Airlines plane at Love Field.
Kidd Kraddick Morning Show listeners and sponsors helped raise more than $500,000 to pay for this year's trip.
