Flights for CharityJim 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 won’t be able to successfully complete such a task without a dedicated ground support team. That’s 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!!
