I WILL FLY AGAIN (Kristyn’s story)

The Santa Barbara Soaring Association is organizing a fundraising film festival for Kristyn Pratt King.

Kristyn had a rough year. She received a heart transplant, and had a leg amputated.  This was all as a result of switching birth control pills. We are hoping you can help Kristyn Pratt King in her recovery, and ultimately her wish to paraglide again.  Please click the “Donate” button below.  Any and all amounts are appreciated.  100% of donations received will go directly to Kristyn.

The Santa Barbara Soaring Association is proud to present the first ever USHPA Free Flight Film Festival, featuring five of the best films showcasing hang gliding, paragliding, and adventure travel in the US.

We will be holding the festival at Chase pavilion on Oct 10th at 7:00pm – 323 E. Cabrillo Blvd in Santa Barbara.  The program will start at 7:00pm and conclude by 9pm.  Come early to get a spot on the grass. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and cooler to enjoy the picnic atmosphere of the wonderful outdoor theater experience.

The amazing visuals and compelling stories are sure to appeal to all audiences – pilots and non-pilots alike.

The event is also a fundraiser for Kristyn Pratt King who is one of our fellow pilots.
