Awesome in Action and Dream Catcher Balloon!

Thanks to the amazing work of Captain Crystal and her assistant Stacy, Nick was able to fulfill a long time dream of going up in an adapted hot air balloon in beautiful Wyoming!

Dream Catcher Balloon is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to give balloon rides in an adapted 2 seat custom built “basket” that allows those with mobility challenges or other concerns to fly! Dream Catcher and Captain Crystal work with people of different abilities, veterans, seniors, and anyone looking to have their dream flight. Captain Crystal is an amazing person and Nick’s flight has been several years in the making!

It was an early day, and tensions were high. Would the wind pick up? Would Nick get to fly? After waking up at 5AM Nick watched out the window while Captain Crystal and the team of volunteers including Nick’s family and friends set up the balloon. At about 6:30AM Captain Crystal gave Nick the OK to get down to the launch area and it was on!

Nick got to ride in the balloon twice, and was so excited. He spun around and looked at the beautiful views of the Snowy Range Mountains and the lake while waving his arms in the air and looking down to his cheering family and friends. His favorite part was looking at the horizon!

Events like these give people like Nick who have different abilities the chance to experience things they may not otherwise get to do.

It’s so important to Nick and his team to make connections with other non-profits looking to spread awareness and inclusivity, and we are proud friends of Captain Crystal and the Dream Catcher Balloon team.

To check out more about Dream Catcher Balloon find them on Facebook or at their website.

Nick can’t wait for his next adventure!
