Paragon Aviation Group Concludes “Fly for a Cure” Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign


Paragon Aviation Group’s® “Fly for a Cure” breast cancer awareness campaign concluded with a $500 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

To increase awareness and have Paragon’s network of FBOs involved in this life-changing campaign, Paragon asked FBO members to wear something pink, take a photo on social media holding a sign with the name of who they wear pink for, and then post on social media using the hashtag #FlyForaCure. For every post, “like”, or “share”, Paragon donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. To encourage friendly competition among FBOs, the FBO team with the most engagements across all social media platforms had the chance to win a team lunch.

Congratulations to ProJet Aviation at Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO), who won the team lunch with over 200 engagements! ProJet Aviation, general aviation’s gateway to Washington D.C., Dulles, and Virginia’s Horse & Wine Country, offers no landing fees, competitive fuel rates, and plane-side access.

“Breast cancer has affected each one of us on some level whether we know a family member, friend, neighbor, or coworker who has battled this disease,” said Megan Barnes, President of Paragon Aviation Group. “We hope that through our ‘Fly for a Cure’ campaign we were able to spread the message about early detection, the importance of mammograms, and raise money for research and cancer support services. Thank you to everyone who posted photos, engaged with us on social media, and helped us increase awareness and our donation amount.”
