Medical flight charity Miracle Flights has announced it provided a total 582 free commercial flights in November to help critically ill children gain access to life-changing medical care not available in their local communities, the company said.
Last month´s report included 52 flights from New York, 50 from California, 44 from North Carolina, 38 from Oklahoma and 28 each from Florida and Tennessee. Since its founding in 1985, Miracle Flights has provided 122,072 free commercial flights and donated nearly 70 million miles to alleviate the financial burden of medical travel for families around the country.
In the spirit of the holiday season, UFC, a mixed martial arts organization, announced its continued support of Miracle Flights as its national charitable partner last month with a USD 20,000 donation to the organization. Through December 31, the public is invited to match UFC´s donation and give hope for a healthy new year to sick children in need.
Miracle Flights is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free medical air transportation to children and adults via commercial airlines throughout the United States.
