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 http://www.flightsforcharities.org/gst.aspx 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 http://www.flightsforcharities.org.

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