For the next two months, The US Hang gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA) and the Foundation for Free Flight (FFF) will be matching funds for the US Paragliding Team. This means for every $ you donate, USHPA and the FFF will match your $. I can't pass that up.
So for the next month when I'm down here in Colombia flying and training, I'm going to pledge $1 for every mile I fly. I only hope I'll be able to fly long distances! I'm aiming for at least 500 miles.... So far I've only gone 31 miles (!) but there is a lot more flying to come. The FAI Open starts today, and I hope to at least make goal a couple of times. The flying down here in Colombia is really amazing.
Stay tuned for updates on my mileage and blogs about how the competition is going!
