LAS COLINAS -- For the 25th year, the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show crew and the Kidd's Kids program are asking for donations to fund a truly magical experience.

54 families with a child that has a life-threatening illness will head to Walt Disney World with all of their expenses paid later this year thanks to Kidd's Kids Day.

"It's really a once in a lifetime opportunity for these families," said Kidd Kraddick Morning Show cast member Jenna Owens.

Kidd Kraddick passed away in 2013, but his outstanding work lives on because of the show and in large part, to his daughter Caroline.

"It's a huge legacy that I feel so honored to be able to carry, and it's been the biggest blessing for me. These kids enrich my life. They always say how much we enrich theirs, but they really have such an impact on us and the radio show," said Kraddick. "They fill up my love tank. They're so awesome."

In 2015, the Kidd's Kids crew raised more than $460,000 to take the children and their families to the happiest place on earth.  "It's just a way for us to give back to some really deserving families that would never be able to on a vacation like this otherwise," said Owens.

Kraddick hopes to keep things with the program growing for years to come.  "It just means the world to us that everyone is still involved," said Kraddick. "I think everyone kind of questioned whether the charity would continue when my dad passed away, but it's been my personal mission to make this my legacy as well, so I can give it to my kids."
