We have been asked to attend the amazing Wings Over Houston Airshow this year, BUT we need to raise $5,100 make the journey to the heart of Texas.  Will you help?

The event takes place October 26 and 27 at Ellington Field. It will be yet another fantastic opportunity to spread the RISE ABOVE inspirational message to folks of all ages, but especially to children who may hear our story at a pivotal moment in their youth. It’s our hope that these moments stoke the fire in a young person’s heart to RISE ABOVE and follow their dreams.

As a special incentive to participate in our endeavor, we’re inviting 100 of our generous supporters to donate $51 to the cause.  And in return your name will be listed on our online Flight Log as a special thanks!

Please help us make the trek to Houston! Your generosity may make a huge difference in the life of our young visitors! Thank you!
