Paragon Aviation Group is excited to begin their annual “Fly for a Cure” campaign raising awareness and money during National Breast Cancer Awareness month with the help of their teddy bear mascot Theodore and introducing new mascots Captain Romeo and Miss Juliet.
The mascots’ goal is to “fly” to as many FBOs as possible throughout the month of October to help spread the word about early detection and raise money for breast cancer research with an ultimate donation goal of $5,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
Last October, Theodore finished his journey with Paragon Flight Training Co., an award-winning, nationally recognized flight academy based at Page Field Airport (KFMY) in Fort Myers, FL. Paragon Flight Training Co. has once again partnered for this worthy cause enabling Theodore to continue training pilots and raising money. For every 10 FBOs Theodore visits, both companies will donate $100 up to a total of $1,000 each.
Captain Romeo, dressed as a U.S. Air Force officer, will start his journey from Ross Aviation – Scottsdale (KSDL) on Friday, October 1st. For each FBO he visits, Paragon Aviation Group will donate $10 with the amount increasing to $20 if the FBO is a member of the Paragon Network.
Miss Juliet will start her voyage internationally at ExecuJet Munich and enjoy flying with Luxaviation Group’s fleet. She will plan to stay overseas touring Europe. As with Capt. Romeo, Paragon Aviation Group will donate $10 for each FBO she visits and it will increase to $20 for Paragon Network FBOs.
To further increase awareness and get all FBOs around the world involved in this life-changing campaign, Paragon invites every FBO to take a team photo wearing pink and post it to any of Paragon Aviation Group’s social media pages with the hashtags #ParagonThinksPink or #FlyForACure. For each FBO that makes a post, Paragon will donate $5.
Last year, Theodore visited over 60 FBOs across the country and helped Paragon exceed their monetary goal with over $1,400 donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. www.nationalbreastcancer.org.
