Children Painted their Dreams on the SafeLaunch plane at the California Capital Airshow

SafeLaunch wrapped up its first major airshow with great media coverage and says thank you to the California Capital Airshow, sponsors and volunteers for their support!

September 5-7, 2014

The Capital Airshow wrapped up Sunday evening. Throughout the day, crowds lined the runway to watch the final planes taking off and landing.  Besides watching and touring the planes and jets, children had a chance to actually paint one of the planes.

“I had a lot of fun doing it.” Said Jeremy Demure.  The activity was organized by “SafeLaunch.”  The co-founder says the idea is for young people to paint their dreams.  We’re going fly the plane away with their dreams on it and launch their dreams safely, hopefully as they will be launched also,” said SafeLaunch co-founder Janet Rowse.  Rowse says the hope is that children will learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle early on.

After the painted plane flies, the organization will wash it white again bring it to air shows in different cities across the country.

The message SafeLaunch flew to deliver is that the human brain is up to 600% more susceptible to becoming dependent on alcohol, tobacco, and drugs at age 14. As children grow up the risk goes down. This explains why 90% of people suffering with the disease of addiction contracted it as children, and why it’s so important to protect young people from exposure.
