BALTIMORE — Aargh! Thanks to the Casey Cares foundation, critically ill children got a chance to live life like a pirate for a day.
A crew of 100 kids and their families set sail from Baltimore's Inner Harbor aboard The Urban Pirate Ship for a day of adventure on the open seas. They enjoyed a bounteous treasure hunt with real live pirates, and mermaids from Baltimore's own Charm City Tails even graced the crews with their presence. Older kids got a chance to go out on private sailboats with their families, thanks to the Downtown Sailing Center. The best part though- it was all free.
The Casey Cares Foundation provides personalized, uplifting and ongoing programs to critically ill children and their family members in eight states, and Washington, D.C.
