After many months of planning the 3rd annual Cops Connecting With Kids Disney Adventure takes off today from Evansville!

48 local students from McGary, Glennwood Academy, and Cedar Hall along with teachers, police officers, and media members are on their way down to Disney for the weekend.

Money from fundraisers including the "Dream Bigger Weekend" were used to send a record number of students to Disney. Students were selected by teachers and administrators from each school for the positive things the kids were doing.

You can follow along on the adventure by liking their Facebook page!
