By Lauren V. | Las Vegas, NV |

Miracle Flights is an organization helping children travel long distances to receive life-saving medical care by providing them with free airline tickets, and their lovable mascot Miles has been giving kids a friend in the air for more than 30 years. Now with the help of Marshall Retail Group, travelers can purchase a Miles of their own to keep them company wherever they go.

The Deets

• Miles the Bear plushies will be available in Mid-October in stores in McCarran International Airport.

• Travelers can also purchase one online or at Welcome to Las Vegas stores in Mandalay Bay, The Grand Canal Shoppes, The Forum and more.

• The plush toy costs $20 and the proceeds go towards helping a child travel to receive medical care.

• Each bear comes with a pair of goggles, aviator jacket, a helmet and a Miracle Flights scarf.
