16th Annual Aubrey Rose Foundation Golf Outing to Feature Team Fastrax™ Performance

On Sunday, May 15th, 2016, the 16th Annual Aubrey Rose Foundation Golf Outing will be held at the Aston Oaks Golf Course in North Bend, OH.  Lunch will be served at noon and there will be a 1:30pm Shotgun start.  Just prior to that, at 1:00pm, 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.  It’s sure to be a sight you’ll not soon forget.    The event is being held to raise money for the Aubrey Rose Foundation.

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 families out there with hospitalized children struggling, and in need of help and hope.  Aubrey Rose Foundation does a great job of supporting those families, so being a part of this event to raise money for their foundation is an honor.”

According to the Aubrey Rose Foundation website, they were founded in memory of their angel, Aubrey Rose.  The foundation provides support and help for those who seek to be lifted from the complexities of life here on earth and to find a greater happiness in those things that could be.  The Aubrey Rose Foundation honors Aubrey’s life by:

  • Awarding educational scholarships for children so that they can better themselves.
  • Helping families with financial need because of medical expenses of their children.
  • Organizing holiday parties and buying toys to brighten the lives of sick children at our local Children’s Hospital.
  • Promoting educational awareness about the need for organ donations.
  • Organizing dinners for the Ronald McDonald House families to boost their spirits so they can carry on taking care of their sick child.
  • Healing the Worlds Hearts Program – This was developed by Aubrey’s Foundation with help from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital doctors, surgeons and corporate support to provide “simple” heart procedures to sick children in the U.S. and developing countries around the world. We say “simple” heart procedures because these are surgeries which can be performed in the U.S. that can SAVE A CHILD’S LIFE letting them go back home to live a healthy and productive life without follow-up cardiac procedures.

Team Fastrax™ is sponsored by SELECTiON.COM®, a leading provider of criminal background checks and pre-employment screening services.   Team Fastrax™ is the most ambitious professional skydiving team in the world.   The parachute demonstration team has a roster of more than twenty-nine active members, with a collective of more than 300,000 skydives.  Team Fastrax™ has performed exhibition skydives all over the world for audiences large and small as a patriotic display or as a product promotion.
