Dive into 2014 with a charity challenge

First published in News

FEARLESS fundraisers have less than a month to sign up for the opportunity of a lifetime - taking to the skies in a sponsored skydive for Cancer Research Wales.

Brave volunteers aged 16 and over have the chance to skydive over Swansea Airfield on Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27, in support of Wales’ indigenous cancer charity.

Cancer Research Wales supporters can expect to jump from at least 10,000 feet and freefall halfway to the ground at 120mph before steering their parachute into landing.

Taking part in the Skydive Day is completely free, provided supporters raise a minimum of £395 each in sponsorship money. Those who raise more than £550 in sponsorship will also receive a £100 travel voucher.

All skydivers will be given full training on the day of the jump and will be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor throughout.

Everyone who takes part in the event will receive a certificate at the end of the day to show that they have completed a ‘two-mile-high’ tandem skydive and helped to battle cancer in Wales.

Cancer Research Wales fundraiser Mei Lewis said: “This is a unique opportunity for people to really dive into 2014, and help reduce the impact of cancer in Wales at the same time.”

“Our Skydive Days always prove really popular, as it’s a way to jump from such a height without spending thousands of pounds on training, so we’re encouraging people to register their interest as soon as possible.”

Anyone who would like to take part in a Cancer Research Wales Skydive Day must complete the registration forms by Friday, February 7.
