VIDEO. Several Lakewood children joined nearly 100 other children with disabilities in a week of fun in Florida-sponsored by Kids Of Courage-a year-old nonprofit group that organizes retreats year-round for kids with complex medical conditions. The children left through Newark airport on a chartered plane. To make the trip possible, Continental Airlines arranged for a separate security screening for the kids and the Kids of Courage team, which included two doctors, three paramedics, five nurses, a physical therapist and an emergency medical technician, plus a personal counselor for each camper. The group, which is funded by private donations, was able to secure discounts and special accommodations from many of the places they plan to visit in Florida, including Universal Studios, Disneyworld and the Tampa Bay Rays.
