We're looking for adrenalin seekers all over the country to take part in a parachute jump or Skydive to raise funds and awareness on our behalf.
A brave team from Sweet Images completed a Skydive in July 2010 and documented their experience. Find out how they got on by watching the video below.
Thank you Sweet Images and well done!
It's a great way to raise money
This is a popular way for an individual to raise money and you will find most people are willing to sponsor at least £5 or £10, if you ask enough people you can easily raise a few hundred pounds!
You jump for free
In return for raising a minimum sponsorship amount, the MND Association will pay for your jump (via Skyline) and receive a sizable donation from your efforts at the same time!
Which jump should I choose?
It's completely up to you and as long as you raise the minimum sponsorship amount you can jump for FREE!
If you want to experience the exhilaration of 120mph freefall you should choose a tandem Skydive. If you want to jump solo with the option to progress in the sport you can do a static line jump using a modern square canopy that allows you to steer.
For the really adventurous, the Accelarated freefall is a solo Skydive!
The following table summarises the three types of jump you can choose from and indicates the principle between them:
| || |
|Minimum Sponsorship Level || |
|Jump Altitude ||10,000ft ||3,000ft ||10,000ft|
|Duration ||1 day ||2 days ||2 days|
|Jump solo or with instructor ||With an instructor ||Solo ||Solo|
|BPA approved Certificate ||Ö ||Ö ||Ö |
Ideal if you want to experience 120mph freefall without having to do a day’s training!
Newer parachute design ideal if you want to jump solo or continue jumping.
1st level of the profesional skydivers course.
From these sums we will receive an average donation of at least £140 and you jump for FREE!! There's over 20 locations across the country for you to choose from, so what are you waiting for!?
