The 2020 Give Hope Wings expedition exceeds fundraising goal
Check out this video of the crew flying along Lake Superior
The five-day flying expedition led by a group of pilots raised $122,056, far exceeding its fundraising goal by 22 per cent. The expedition travelled through Northern Ontario and Quebec at the beginning of October. The funds will allow Hope Air to provide 488 flights for patients in financial need who must travel far from home for medical care. It would not have been possible without our amazing volunteer pilots and flight crew and our generous sponsors.
Thank you to our sponsors!
