In 1985, Miracle Flights began with a simple idea -- help children and families who, due to financial difficulties, cannot obtain much-needed medical care far from home. Thirty years after it moved from a dream and a goal to a nonprofit organization assisting many, saving lives one flight at a time, they now celebrate a huge milestone. Miracle Flights recently surpassed 100,000 free flights to this valuable, necessary specialized care and vital second opinions. Through August 2016, these flights have garnered more than 57 million miles, helping individuals one at a time through donor contributions, volunteer hours and a campaign of awareness. Miracle Flights now looks forward to thousands of miles more and every single flight that continues to help another family, person and child in medical need.
