The four day Team Fastrax™ Warrior Weekend to Remember is held in conjunction with the Ohio Challenge Hot Air Balloon Festival, Officially Sponsored by SELECTiON.COM®, in Middletown, OH, and starts Thursday, July 7th with an evening of go-kart racing and night bow fishing. The Team Fastrax™ Warrior Weekend to Remember is an exciting combination of activities meant to enrich the lives of our active duty and veteran men and women injured in combat or training. 40 combat injured warriors and 12 Gold Star families will participate in activities such as tandem skydives, air-craft rides, hot air balloon rides, and a gun shoot. These events will raise money and awareness for the Blue Skies for the Good Guys and Gals Warrior Foundation. Additional public events include a roadside welcome/parade, Lone Star Military Tribute Concert, 5k Run/Walk/Ranger Ruck, and a 25 mile bicycle ride. Information on these events can be found at WarriorWTR.com.
The Ohio Challenge Hot Air Balloon Festival runs Friday, July 8th through Saturday July 9th, from 4pm to 10pm and will include skydiving demos by Team Fastrax™, fireworks courtesy of Start Skydiving, a laser light show, evening balloon glows, live entertainment, a carnival, car show, and food and craft vendors. Walk-In Admission is $4 per adult (13 and under are free) or $10 per vehicle which includes parking, admission for all occupants and free shuttle service.
John Hart, Owner of Start Skydiving, and Member of Team Fastrax™ said, “Middletown is our home, and we love to do anything we can to support it. The Ohio Challenge is not just about hot air balloons, it’s about connecting as a community. We hope everyone comes out and enjoys the weather, activities and time with one another. The Team Fastrax™ Warrior Weekend to Remember makes this event so much more special. Putting smiles on the faces of so many of our wounded active duty and veteran armed forces members, makes being a part of this a great honor.”
Blue Skies for the Good Guys & Gals Warrior Foundation was formed in 2005 by the Team Fastrax™ Professional Skydiving Team. In addition to this life enriching weekend, the Foundation provides a skydiving program for wounded veterans of America’s Armed Forces. Since formed, the foundation has taken more than 1,100 combat wounded veterans and Gold Star families skydiving. The program is primarily funded through the support of SELECTiON.COM® and private donations. The Foundation staff is made up of volunteers from Team Fastrax™ and 100% of funds raised go directly to support their warrior events. To make a donation visit BS3G.org.
