Ryan C. – Fund For Flights, Inc.

Ryan C. has aspirations to attend the Naval Academy after graduating from Whitmore School and is already going out of his way to support our troops. Ryan C. is a great inspiration to many. We interviewed him on what inspires him to do what he does. Here’s what we learned:

Q: What inspired you to want to join the Navy?

I have wanted to fly since I was 6 when I went to my first Air Show at NAS Jacksonville. Another reason why I wanted to go into the Navy is because of my grandfather. He was a Naval Aviator for 17 years flying the P-3 Orion.

Q: What inspired you to start a non-profit organization?

I attended a Space Coast Honor Flight send away party. From that moment, I knew I needed to do something to benefit the organization. I decided to start Funds For Flights to benefit them. I have over $2,500 raised and it’s growing every day.

Q: How can people participate and help?

People can do anything from spreading the word to donating. Also, my friends like to volunteer at any time they can. I have a booth to sell the flags at a large event, Space Coast Light Fest.

For more information, check out Ryan’s website: Funds For Flights, Inc.  There is a donate button and more information about the organization.
