Greensboro Rotary Angel Flight Team Returns Victory Junction Camper Home
Warren Ludlam, Contributor
The Greensboro Rotary/Angel Flight team, supported by the Rotary Club of Greensboro’s Foundation by covering the cost of fuel used to fly its missions, continues to volunteer in helping fly at no charge kidney patients, cancer patients, burn survivor children, tumor patients, organ donors, transplant patients, and others dealing with chronic health issues.
Recently, Eric Perdew, club member and one of our Rotary/Angel Flight volunteer pilots, and club member Randy White flew Daniel, a 16-year-old kidney disease and diabetic amputee patient, home to Baltimore following his week of fun activities at the Richard Petty family’s Victory Junction camp. The free air transportation assistance we provided kept him from having to endure a very difficult, uncomfortable six-hour drive.
Donations from the Greensboro Rotary Club Foundation are used by our volunteer pilot team to provide the fuel for their private planes flown on Angel Flight missions, enabling them to aid people in need through our club’s support and community service. The flights benefit chronically ill children, adults, and military veterans by making available free air transportation to/from their specialized medical appointments and for reasons of compassion. Club members wishing to experience one of our Angel Flight missions are invited to fly along by contacting Eric Perdew or Warren Ludlam.
