DENVER -- November 01, 2012

Frontier Airlines today announced it is launching a month-long fundraising and
awareness campaign for Boulder, Colo.-based Make A Hero, an organization
founded by Kurt Miller with a mission of helping individuals with disabilities
and local adaptive sports groups gain recognition and funding.

Frontier will raise funds to support Make A Hero by donating all proceeds from
onboard sales of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s Plain Ol’ Fashioned Fudge
to the organization. The carrier will also feature Miller’s documentary The
Movement, narrated by Robert Redford and Warren Miller, on its LiveTV
programming on flights of two hours or less.

“Frontier, as a Colorado-based airline, has long supported organizations that
help the disabled enjoy the outdoors in our home state through adaptive and
rehabilitative sports programs,” said Cathy Rieb, Frontier’s director of
marketing. “We hope our customers find The Movement to be as inspiring as we
did and choose to share the efforts of Make A Hero, and other local
organizations, to expand these adaptive sports programs to reach even more
people across the country.”

About The Movement

THE MOVEMENT: One Man Joins an Uprising is the story of one man returning to
the mountain where his life was changed forever. He receives inspiration in
his quest from four people who overcame physical disabilities to discover the
freedom of movement. Peppered with humor and drama, this is a story of people
who face adversity with an intense inner fire.

In 2004 Rick Finkelstein was paralyzed in a ski accident on Aspen Mountain.
With a severed spine and internal trauma, he wasn’t expected to live. Six
years, nine surgeries, and a lifetime of rehab later, cameras captured his
dramatic return to Aspen. Even with the latest gear, expert coaching, and
mentorship from the sport’s pioneers, Rick faced a daunting challenge with
many risks and no guarantees.

Rick’s friend, witness to the crash: “It wasn’t until later that I completely
broke down. You realize that it’s just so fragile.”

organization Miller founded to raise awareness and funds around sports
opportunities for people living with disabilities.
