Local HERO Foundation Launches New Initative

The Local HERO Foundation is launching a new initiative.

At its Cinco De Mayo themed fundraiser at Shell Place Saturday, organizers introduced the new Speed of Life campaign.

The idea is individuals or small business owners can buy an hour of a flight for HERO1, Wood Buffalo’s only 24/7 medevac service, for $1,200.

“This hour of flight equates to saving a life as most of the medevac missions are about 1 hour,” organizers say.

The foundation was able to sell 100 hours at Saturday’s event – with the evening bringing in a total of $221,000.

While they met their goal – organizers say the program requires support throughout the year.

Those still interested in donating can find more information on the Foundation’s website and the Local HERO Foundation Facebook page.
