SAN ANTONIO – Children of all abilities were encouraged to take flight Friday night with indoor skydiving.

The experiential entertainment company iFLY partnered with Kinetic Kids to encourage individuals to push past their limitations and give skydiving a shot.

Kinetic Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children who experience challenges, including Down's syndrome, Asperger's syndrome, cerebral palsy and other disorders.

"We've had children here who are in walkers or wheelchairs, or who aren't even verbal," said Kacey Wernli, executive director at Kinetic Kids. "They have gone into the tube, into the tunnel, and they have come out smiling. You can just see the joy on their face."

Wernli said the group encourages kids to try many different sports and she's happy to add skydiving to the list.
