Last year when tragedy fell on Flight For Life in Summit County, a few local residents who had been helped by Flight For Life heard the call to do something to give back to this incredible organization. This year on Aug. 20, the second annual Strider for Life event was held at the Frisco Peninsula to raise money for the Flight For Life fund and the building of Memorial Park to honor pilot Patrick Mahany, who lost his life in the crash on July 3, 2015. The event raised $10,743, which will be matched by several philanthropists.
