A tandem skydive is the easiest way to experience the thrill of jumping out of a plane, while you make a big difference to JDRF and medical research. The Jump to Cure Diabetes is the ultimate challenge – and a great way to raise funds for type 1 diabetes research.
Imagine the feeling when you and your instructor step out of the plane’s door up to 14,000 feet above the ground … and freefall for at least 20 seconds at 240km per hour … before pulling the parachute cord … and floating to the ground with incredible views over the local area.
Watch Oli’s video below to see the thrill of the Jump. Oli even steered the parachute while enjoying the amazing views over Picton!
We have setup an Australian Baby Bargains / Mum Central TEAM and would love for you to join us on this fun & fabulous journey! Invite your partner, your friends – everyone’s welcome! To qualify you need to raise $1,250 between now and your jump date then the jump is free (normally $400-500) PLUS you get a DVD of the jump as a momento to take home.
WHAT DOES THE JUMP TO CURE DIABETES INVOLVE?
Skydiving is the fastest non-motorised sport in the world! You will be participating in a tandem skydive with training provided. Securely attached to a highly experienced instructor, you will enjoy seconds of exhilarating free fall, reaching speeds of up to 240km per hour. You will then soar over amazing views of your local area under a parachute built for two. You can even steer the parachute if you wish!
