Victory Junction Camper Flies with Angel Flight Team

Warren Ludlam, Contributor

Recently, Jon Wells, one of our Rotary/Angel Flight volunteer pilots, flew Melanie, a young cancer patient, in his plane from her home in Norfolk, VA, to Greensboro. She has been treated to a free week of fun at the nearby Richard Petty family’s Victory Junction Camp. The drive normally would have been difficult and uncomfortable, given her advanced medical condition.

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.
