NORFOLK, Va. - An 11-year-old girl from Norfolk will be taking an Angel Flight to attend Victory Junction Camp, a NASCAR-themed camp for children with medical issues.

This will be Destiny Battle's fourth year at Victory Junction Camp. The camp is located in Randleman, North Carolina, which is about a four-hour drive from Norfolk.

The President and CEO of Angel Flight, Robb Alpaugh, will be flying Destiny to and from camp in his Mooney M20K. Alpaugh has been an Angel Flight pilot for nine years.

Destiny was also recently chosen by Toby’s Dream Foundation, an organization dedicated to granting "dreams" to children with life-threatening illnesses.
