HopeKids Fly-in Recap
By Nelson Garrison
On Saturday, October 27th, Pegasus Airpark held its 3rd HopeKids breakfast fly-in event. There were 18 HopeKids Families participating and Pegasus pilots gave 25 rides to families and children with life threatening conditions. We also helped raise over $1700 for HopeKids at the event!
Local Association Helps Kids “Fly”
Queen Creek, ARIZONA – October 27, 2018 – More than 20 Arizona families will rediscover hope thanks to the generosity of the Arizona Pilot's Association and Pegasus Airpark in Queen Creek. On October 27, the pilots will provide a pancake breakfast and the opportunity to help "fly" a plane for families that are a part of HopeKids, a local nonprofit organization that provides ongoing events and activities for families who have a child with a life-threatening medical condition. “We work to keep kids focused on the future, looking forward to the next fun event around the corner, rather than dwelling on what they are dealing with in the present,” said Angie Abfalter, HopeKids Program Manager. “We couldn’t do this without the help of local donors and volunteers like the Arizona Pilot’s Association and, for that, we are so grateful.” Each month, HopeKids schedules a variety of sporting events, live performances, museum visits or other types of fun activities for the whole family. All events are focused on the whole family to prevent siblings from being unintentionally overlooked, bring families together that understand their journey, and are offered at no cost to families.
