12th Annual Abilities First Golf Classic to Feature Team Fastrax™ Performance

On Friday, May 6th, 2016, the 12th Annual Abilities First Golf Classic will be held at the Brown’s Run Country Club in Middletown, OH.  There will be a 1 o’clock Shotgun start, and just prior to that, at 12:30pm, Team Fastrax™, a world renowned skydiving team, will be performing their American Flag Skydive.   The performance will include their amazing 1,100 sq. ft. American Flag as well as a red, white, and blue streamer.  It’s sure to be a sight you’ll not soon forget.    The event is being held to raise money for the Abilities First organization.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™, said, “We are thrilled to be performing at such an important event.  There are so many adults and children out there in need of help.   Abilities First does a great job of supporting those in need, so being a part of this event to raise money for their organization is an honor.”
