Brought to the Cuyahoga County Fair by The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program, the DreamShip is a one-of-a-kind hot air balloon with a design as unique as its mission. Standing more than 8 stories tall, it is comprised of more than 400 fabric panels, 130 of which uniquely feature drawings of the dreams of children helped by Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization based in Owasso, Oklahoma, dedicated to providing educational scholarships to children of fallen or disabled service members. Fully operational, every time the DreamShip takes flight, it raises awareness of Folds of Honor and the sacrifice of our country’s military heroes and their families. To date, The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program has provided over $5.2 million to Folds of Honor, funding over 1,100 educational scholarships in communities served by Rite Aid, and will donate an additional $2 million during the 2018-19 school year.
