July 10, 2019
(CALGARY) WINGS magazine is a recipient of Hope Air’s 2019 Outstanding Philanthropist Award. The award was presented Wednesday afternoon at the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA) convention in Calgary.

Hope Air is the only national charity that provides Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home, regardless of age or medical need. The Outstanding Philanthropist Award is presented to a CBAA member who has shown exemplary commitment to ensuring equal access to medical care for patients in need across the country. It celebrates their philanthropic leadership, which plays a key role in bridging the gap between home and vital medical care for patients across the country.
As Canada’s aviation resource for stories related to business and commercial aviation, WINGS is a loyal supporter of Hope Air. Both their print and online publications are proud to feature our organization, whether it’s through timely editorial coverage, or generously donated advertising space. Spreading the word about the work that we do is an important part of insuring that every patient that requires Hope Air’s services is able to access it, and that every possible supporter is aware of our mission.
WINGS magazine is a devoted supporter,” says Hope Air chief executive officer, Doug Keller-Hobson. “Whether we’re celebrating a major milestone, or launching a big event they are there to help tell our story. Their work helps us ensure that Hope Air’s message gets in front of all of the WINGS readers, and that our work can reach as many patients as possible.” 
WINGS and our parent company, Annex Business Media, understand the important role we can play in helping Hope Air reach its goals to provide Canadians in need with free travel to access medical care,” says Martin McAnulty, Group Publisher and Vice President of Sales, Annex Business Media. “Given the scope of Hope Air’s national platform and its many outstanding contributors from across the country, we greatly appreciate this recognition as a valued, long-standing partner.”
Hope Air is Canada’s only national charity providing Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home, regardless of age or medical need .Since its inception in 1986, Hope Air has provided more than 140,000 travel arrangements to patients in need.
For people living on a low income in small and rural communities, distance and cost are very real barriers to them accessing vital medical care. Hope Air is a unique and essential part of our Canadian healthcare system. Without the access Hope Air provides, our national system of universal healthcare coverage would fall short of its promise.
