Flights for Charity

Jim Rice asked that I post the following info…

Fellow hang-glider and paraglider pilots,

In May of 2006, I raised over $4,000 for Angel Flight Southeast during an event that I organized and conducted called Jumps for Charities. During Jumps for Charities, I successfully completed 37 skydives in a single day (in celebration of my 37th birthday). However, I was able to accomplish this task only with the help of a dedicated ground support team.

On May 31, 2008, I will be conducting Flights for Charities at LMFP. During Flights for Charities, I will raise funds for Fisher House Foundation by attempting to complete 39 mountain flights during the daylight hours between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. (in honor of my 39th birthday). As you have already surmised, this is an extremely ambitious goal and, as with Jumps for Charities, I wont be able to successfully complete such a task without a dedicated ground support team. Thats where you come in I need your help!!

In short, it will take a small army of volunteers and a small armada of equipment to successfully carry out Flights for Charities.

PLEASE take a look at the Flights for Charities Ground Support Team website and sign up to volunteer where you feel that you can best contribute.

If you are unable to volunteer your time or equipment/logistics, please consider pledging to the event at the Flights for Charities pledge page

Thank you for you helping me support Fisher House Foundation during Flights for Charities!!

Jim Rice
