Jump for Diabetes
From event website
Jump to Cure Diabetes is a great way to tick something off your 2014 Bucket List whilst also helping to raise money to help cure Type 1 Diabetes.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is holding a fundraiser with a difference - a tandem sky dive on Saturday 15th March 2014.
You will be diving from 14,000 feet above sea level with a qualified instructor from Coastal Skydive. You'll undergo a training session on the morning of your skydive, then get to sky dive tandem (attached to your instructor) and enjoy the local scenery as you free fall for at least 20 seconds at a speed of up to 240km p/hr before opening the parachute and making your way down. What an exhilarating experience!
Included in the experience is a training session on the morning of your skydive, a scenic flight,a tandem skydive and family and friends get to watch your dive from a viewing area if they wish. Plus,you are contributing funds to help provide research into a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
To participate in this activity, you will need to pay a $100 deposit which is non-refundable, plus there is a minimum fundraising goal of $1,250 for each participant. The JDRF are more than happy to help you with some fundraising ideas to get you on your way.
For further information about what age restrictions apply and to register, please see the JDRF Website. Places for each jump are limited.
