The 14 trekkers arrived at the airport this morning ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
We were quite impressed with the packing skills of several of the trekkers who managed to pack for the trek and mission with only one bag and a carry on!
Before they boarded the plane, they received a special sendoff from our friends and partners at Delta Airlines! A heartfelt goodbye on the loud speaker at the gate from Captain Greg Cardis, Chief Pilot for Delta Airlines and Andy Zarras, Vice President for Delta Airlines brought tears and cheers from fellow travelers!

Thank you to our friends & partners at Delta Airlines for the wonderful send off this morning to our 14 volunteers…
