International Drone Racing Association

The International Drone Racing Association has named its charitable partner for the 2018 Drone Racing Series and 2018 Challengers Cup, Miracle Flights, an organization established in 1985 that provides free commercial air transportation to very ill children who cannot afford costly transportation to treatment centers that may be located far from their homes.

Celebrating its 33rd anniversary, during its history Miracle Flights recorded 114,000 flights for children in need, often those suffering from “rare and life-threatening illnesses” according to the organization.

Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown spoke glowingly of the partnership, saying “IDRA has engaged an incredible community of individuals across the country and around the world…To have them partner with us in our mission to improve access to healthcare for seriously ill children is a true honor. We look forward to everything we can accomplish—and the lives we can change—together.”

This new partnership is part of the International Drone Racing Association’s goal of broadening the appeal of the sport and putting it into the mainstream spotlight. For its part, Miracle Flights will also enjoy increased exposure to new audiences, bolstering its mission and spreading the word about their noble objectives.
