About This Activity

The goal of Angels Take Flight is to help restore dignity, pride and positive self esteem in children. We provide luggage and other transitional items to children who have to move from place to place including foster care placements, hospital settings, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, or other safe homes. The funds from the Angels Take Flight 5K will go toward purchasing new luggage for the children of the community in transitions.

 The 5K will take place on Sunday, April 27, 2014.
