Endeavor Air was proud to partner with Bert’s Big Adventure (BBA) again in 2023, helping to provide 12 deserving kids and their families with a trip of a lifetime.
Established by Bert Weiss, host of the nationally syndicated morning radio show, “The Bert Show,” Bert’s Big Adventure provides an all-expenses-paid journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
This year marks the organization’s 20th anniversary, and Endeavor has served as the official airline partner of BBA since 2018, operating the flights from Atlanta to Orlando and back with these VIP passengers aboard.
Brad Baell, Endeavor Air Director of Flying, was on the Endeavor operations team that planned this year’s trip. Baell was a special guest on “The Bert Show” before the group departed for Disney World and spoke about this year’s trip.
“We really put our heart and soul into this mission,” Baell said. “It’s a part of who we are as a company. Our team truly cares about our community… and it’s a great opportunity to give back.”
The send-off was held at a gate in the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where Endeavor employee volunteers could be seen wearing Mickey ears, holding up signs and cheering for the children and their families as they boarded the aircraft.
“We see their light shining through adversity, and we’d like to take the opportunity to shine that light back on them during this exciting time,” Baell said. “We couldn’t be prouder to partner with Bert’s Big Adventure and provide this service.”
Thank you to the Endeavor team, including our crew members who operated the flights, for making BBA 2023 a special and memorable experience.
