Parachuting for Brake
Oct 06 2016
Every week there are 35 people killed on the roads in the UK. Brake is appealing for 35 adventure-seekers to raise awareness and fundraise in aid our our work supporting families devastated by road crashes and campaigning for safer roads.
Jumps are happening every weekend of the year; at airfields around the UK. Ring Lisa on 01484 683294 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and find out where the nearest airfield is to you.
So what's it all about?
Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet - the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go - falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph. Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below. Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help Brake by raising funds for the charity!
Stop imagining! It's real and you can do it! You will: complete the jump and training in one day; be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times; jump from at least 10,000 feet - just like the professionals; freefall down to 5,000 feet - falling through the air at 120mph; ride the parachute down to the ground - qualified instructors will teach you how to steer onto the drop zone (the landing will be controlled by your instructor); and you will receive a certificate to prove that you have completed a “two mile high” tandem skydive!
All we ask is that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £400. This covers the cost of the jump (approximately £250) and raises an additional minimum of £150 towards Brake’s work. (We give you tips to help you raise your sponsorship.) Every penny goes towards our dedicated work preventing road death and injury and caring for people bereaved or injured in road crashes.
