Over 35 Children of the Fallen Project members are expected to attend the event at Paraclete XP in Raeford, where they will receive basic training on the fundamentals of human flight and experience the adrenaline of soaring in the world’s biggest wind tunnel. Event attendees will also enjoy a complimentary lunch, provided by long-time Army’s Army partner Fazoli’s.
“We are so thankful to have partners like Paraclete XP SkyVenture and Fazoli’s, who are willing to provide these fun, engaging opportunities for our Children of the Fallen Project youth and mentors to bond with one another,” commented Janine West, Executive Director of The Army’s Army. “These special events give surviving military families something to look forward and we are thrilled to provide them with these opportunities.”
