The fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, April 15, at 7 a.m., at Orlando Executive Airport, 365 Rickenbacker Drive will raise money for Angel Flight Southeast.
Angel Flight Southeast provides free transportation to patients of all ages who need access to life-saving medical appointments they otherwise would not be able to travel to because of distance and cost.

The race begins at the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Community Building on airport property. Additional event sponsors include the National Air Traffic Controller's Charitable Association, Publix Supermarkets Charities, Chick-Fil-A, and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
