Project PINK / Fly for the Cure / 2016

Some may or may not know that Dale Hunter lost his wife Arlene last year to cancer thus the start of this project. Only had a chance to make one fun fly last year, but this year hopping to attend many of them throughout Alberta. The goal is to raise $5000 so that a permanent plaque can be put up on the wall at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton in memory of Arlene.

Last year $1350 was raised at the fall fish fly, so the $5000 should be achievable. Pictured below is the plane to watch for at the various fun flys. If for some reason the goal is not met the plane will be auctioned off at the end of the flying season with 100% of the proceeds going towards/exceeding the goal. Will take donations via MT if you are not able to attend (over $15 gives you a tax receipt).

$40: Take the plane for a flight (note: spare plane NIB that is covered/painted/decaled)

$5: Pink ribbon decal with Arlene’s name on (supplied by Pro RC Canada)

Working on t-shirts (TBA)

Hi Brad, If you are wanting to contribute to the project send a PM to me with your intentions if sending by Postal or MT, your name will go on the pledge sheet which I submit to the Alberta Cancer Foundation after each event.

To fly the plane you would have to be at the many events Iíll be attending throughout Alberta this summer which I will post a week before each event. Because the maac calendar is still a work in progress, hard to lay out the entire year.

Updated Total for 2016 ( $120 )

Re: Project PINK / Fly for the Cure / 2016

Will be attending the CARFF Annual Airplane Auction at Sylvan Lake, AB on May 7th as the club was kind enough to give me a display table for the Project.

I’ve added stickers for those that wish to have something for the plane, TX box or a window. These were made at Pro RC Canada, but because the machine was unable to recognize the cut line they will not be precut. Most in the hobby are good with scissors & hobby knife, also recommend applying with the Windex method. Asking $5 for 2 stickers with 100% of the funds going to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Thanks.

Pete
