From the moment he was born 11 months ago, Pirelli's life has been nothing short of extraordinary. Now he's getting a fourth foot from the prosthetics specialists who inspired "Dolphin Tale."

The Hope and Weather Tour welcomes any school to participate that is within 20 miles of our station (downtown Atlanta - this is due to achieveing a signal for our live broadcast). The presentation will last approximately one hour from 11:30am-12:30pm, and will include being live on our 12pm newscast. Any and all students from your school, 2nd-6th grade, are welcome to attend.
If your school is not located within 20 miles of Atlanta, but would still love to have an 11Alive Meteorologist come teach your class about the weather, you are welcome to sign up for a “Weather Team Visit”. Those can be scheduled any time of day (as they do not involve a live broadcast), and do not have to meet the requirement of being within 20 miles of our station.
11Alive Weather Visits will be availble for reservation in January.
