We Are All Fighters

"I want to thank each and every single one of you. Without Miracle Flights and all of ya’ll, for a fact I would not be standing here. I know for a fact, I’ve been fighting through this since I was one day old, and now I’m twelve years old and they said I wouldn’t make it.

"One thing my grandfather said is, 'Live life to the fullest. Don’t let what you have,' like Jansen’s Metaphyseal Chondrodysplasia, 'don’t let that stop you. Go and do what you want to do.'

"Yes I have a bad back. Yes I have bad legs, but I’m still standing here. That’s all that matters." - "Little" Levi

 

We are proud to continue our support of Miracle Flights and further assist families across the country to help ease their financial burden of travel to obtain the life-changing care they need."

- Ike Lawrence Epstein
UFC Chief Operating Officer

 

ABOUT The 2018 Matching Gift Challenge

UFC®, the world’s premier Mixed Martial Arts organization, is continuing its support for Miracle Flights, the nation’s leading medical flight charity, through 2019.

Earlier this year, UFC donated funds that will continue to assist Miracle Flights’ mission to provide free commercial flights for children in need of specialized medical care far from home. The gift marked an extension of UFC’s national charitable partnership with Miracle Flights and is part of a larger gift package totaling $40,000.

“We are proud to continue our support of Miracle Flights and further assist families across the country to help ease their financial burden of travel to obtain the life-changing care they need,” UFC Chief Operating Officer Ike Lawrence Epstein said.

Established in 1985, Miracle Flights provides approximately 600 free flights each month to children with rare and life-threatening medical conditions. To date, the charity has provided more than 120,000 flights.

“Every flight we provide is only possible because of the support we receive from generous donors and partners such as UFC,” said Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown. “UFC’s investment in Miracle Flights represents a tremendous gift of hope to so many families who thought they had none. We are beyond grateful to have UFC support Miracle Flights and give our kids a fighting chance to live a healthier life. We are challenging all additional donors and partners to match this donation through Monday, December 31, as part of our matching challenge initiative."

Please, join the fight and give generously today. Miracle Flights' children and families desperately need to reach life-chaning medical care that's far from home. You can be the difference in their young lives. You can give them A Cure For Distance. You can make miracles happen.
