After several meetings and sharing this idea with almost everybody I came in contact with, we set the stage for our first event at South Oaks Aerodrome in Winterville, NC. I talked with the local EAA chapter and they too shared in my excitement. They immediately offered to provide the planes and the fuel to make this day happen. I left the meeting thinking WOW! We really have a great opportunity to touch the lives of people that are going through a tough season in their life. The children are all battling some type of chronic or critical illness, though we may not be able to heal their sickness, through laughter and fun we can make it less painful for the entire family.
As the name implies, Free To Be Me is a day for the children and their siblings to come out and just feel free to be themselves with no restrictions!
I am so proud to be a part of this event and to have so many great people stepping up to make this event great for the children. Please stay tuned for the rest of the story as it unfolds...
Will you partner with us?
