JUMP FOR CANCER
The Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society is seeking participants for its next fundraising initiative, Jump for Cancer, a unique fundraising event in which people raise funds in return for a tandem skydive.
The event, scheduled for November 5, with Skydive Taupo and organisers say they are expecting it to take their fundraising efforts to new heights. ’’Last year participants raised an impressive $28,000. This year we are giving more people the chance to jump for cancer and are hoping that we will raise even more,’’ says Catriona Findlay, Fundraising Manager for the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society.
Fundraisers are required to raise a minimum of $800 in exchange for a 12,000 feet tandem skydive or $1000 in exchange for a 15,000 feet tandem skydive with one of Skydive Taupo’s professional skydiving instructors. The skydive itself will be in one of the worlds most scenic drop zones with views of snow capped mountains and the fresh blue waters of Lake Taupo.
Findlay says the event is great for both adrenalin seekers and those who are scared of heights.
