The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation and DIRECTV have teamed together to provide critically ill children in cities across America with once in a lifetime, uplifting experiences aboard the DIRECTV Blimp. Pediatric oncology patients from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC, will board the DIRECTV airship and soar above the city of Westminster. They will have an opportunity to meet the air crew, sit at the controls and learn all about these exceptional flying machines.
The DIRECTV blimp, one of the first airships of its kind in North America, houses a 2,100-foot LED screen and travels to 115 different towns each year, covering major sporting events such as the Superbowl, the World Series, the US Open Tennis and the NBA playoffs. DIRECTV is partnering with the Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation to give sick children a day they will never forget.
