News from Team Fastrax:
On Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 Team Fastrax broke our own world record of the largest flag flown while skydiving as Larry Compton jumped a 19,568 sq. ft. lavender flag. This flag was in honor of John and David Hart’s sister, Jennifer Rose Schaffer, who passed away in April from pancreatic cancer. The lavender color is representative of all types of cancer, not just one particular type, and the jump was to create a heightened awareness for all cancer research. The flag weighed 350 lbs. and had to be loaded onto the plane by forklift! There were 6 other Team Fastrax members on the jump with lavender smoke and Jennifer’s husband, Charlie, got to be a part of this jump via tandem. We want to thank everyone who has been a part of making this world record possible!
