Flight Hero Spotlight

Give A Mile is very fortunate to have dedicated supporters that regularly sign on to be a Flight Hero.

A Flight Hero commits to raising 25,000 Aeroplan points or $ 1,500 so that Give A Mile can provide a flight to reconnect families that are dealing with end of life. This amazing group of individuals and companies have been responsible for over 100 flights.

Nicky Nash

Nicky has been a Give A Mile Flight Hero since 2015 and has committed to taking on another flight for our 2020 Christmas Campaign. As the leader of a non profit, Kids Up Front Calgary, Nicky truly understands the importance of supporting families that experience financial barriers.

Recently, we asked Nicky to share her experience as a Give A Mile Flight Hero

When did you start being a Flight Hero with Give A Mile?
Oh boy, I think it was in December of 2015

Why did you decide to take on the responsibility of Being a Flight Hero and raising the Aeroplan points to support a flight?
I love the cause! Give A Mile is a brilliant and innovative organization that is not duplicating the efforts of any other group. Connecting palliative patients with their loved ones is important, and I cannot imagine not seeing my family in their time of need.


How has the experience been? Have you felt supported in your role, and have you achieved your personal goals as a Flight Hero?
The experience has been great. I have been successful in raising the 25,000 miles each year. It is fun and an easy way to give back during the holiday season. The people who volunteer with Give A Mile are some of the best people and great to work with!

Perhaps you can discuss the feeling you get when you have completed a successful Flight Hero campaign?
When Give A Mile provides the family's story that I've helped, it is so impactful and all of the effort worth it. It makes me feel like I have made a difference in their lives and given them memories they may not have had otherwise.

What keeps bringing you back to be a Flight Hero?
The impact, the people and the cause.

From all of us at Give A Mile... Nicky, thank you! You truly are a hero!
