Extreme Flight to Find a Cure

A Dawn Flight at Bristol Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

A central Iowan is planning another high altitude flight to benefit cancer research.  Tim Cloyd stopped by the WHO Radio studios to tells Van & Bonnie fans about his 6th annual flight to find a cure.

He writes: The one flight will take place sometime between this December and next March. I may reach altitudes of 17,000 feet and fly several hundreds of miles. The previous flights have been flown between 105 and 413 miles in distance. These flights have raised over $31,000 for cancer research. You can be a part of this flight in two ways. First you can honor people that you know who are dealing with or have dealt with cancer by submitting their names for me to fly on the flight. I call this “Lifting UP a Loved One”. You must submit a minimum of $10 per name for the name to be flown. You then can designate what cancer organization you want your donation to go to. Secondly you can track the flight as it happens. I have a live tracking device on-board so the general public can follow the flight. Both donations and names of Loved Ones have been coming in and you can scroll to the bottom to donate and submit names.
