Ellie’s Waterpark Adventure

Ellie, 8, with low-functioning autism, had a splash at Aquatica Orlando for her dream trip!

“Ellie enjoyed her trip to the waterparks immensely! It was all she would talk about, what dates and what times and places she would go. She especially enjoyed visiting Aquatica and going on her first water slides! She went back and forth at least 20 times. It was great just being able to relax with family and watch her be happy and know what to expect next was going to be fun. Thank you so much!” – Bailey, Ellie’s mom

Sunshine Foundation was able to answer Ellie’s “dream come true” through a grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation
