Board member flies to North Pole to support Angel Flight South Central


On July 14-28, AFSC Treasurer Wayne Maynard took an exciting adventure: he flew from Dallas to the North Pole and back to raise awareness and funding for Angel Flight South Central.


Wayne first became involved with Angel Flight because he lost a brother to cancer, and he has become an avid supporter ever since. 


The trip involved both planned and unexpected adventure, including delivering children's letters to Santa, meeting a team of scientists studying Mars-like conditions on an Arctic island, and having his flight plan altered by a low-pressure weather pattern.


This is the second time he has undertaken this North Pole Journey to support AFSC. This trip raised more than $80,000 for the organization.
