Upcoming Events

 We are working on our upcoming calendar. Do you have a camp or event you think we should come to? Submit a request to info@Reach4thestars.org


  • “Robbie” our Special Shape Balloon will appear at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, October 12th and 13th.  We can use your help!

    The Special Shape Rodeo in an AM event

    meeting at 6:30 AM on site.  The Glowdeo

    is a PM event meeting at 5:30 PM on site.

    Plan extra time for parking and getting to

    The launch site.






We need your help to inflate and deflate Robbie.  He is no light weight, in fact, the fabric portion of Robbie weights close to 1000 lbs.  He is 130’ Tall and 70’ wide and holds over 175,000 cubic feet of air.  We hope Robbie encourages people, regardless of the challenges of life, to always Reach For The Stars. To get passes to crew without paying entrance fee, you must register to crew for the event. You need to go to https://www.cognitoforms.com/Aibf1/ChaseCrewApplicationRegistration . Once completed, you will be issued a pass for admission.


Operated by the Reach For the Stars Hot Air Balloon Foundation, a recognized 501c3 Non Profit. When Robbie appears at an event, like the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the funds raised by the event help support bringing our wheelchair accessible hot air balloon to camps for children with physical disabilities.  It is our goal to go to as many camps as possible in the 2018 camp season at little or no cost to the camps.  For more information, please refer to www.reach4thestars.org or call 951-538-7368.
