ACRF Skydiving charity challenge opens again for 2014!

If a 60 second free fall from impossible heights sounds like your cup of tea, then it’s time to sign up for our most hair-raising fundraiser yet!

The ACRF is taking to the skies once again with our Jump! campaign, and we’re looking for fearless skydivers from all over Australia to help us raise vital funds for world-class cancer research.

This year we have four adrenaline fuelled days lined up across Aus and each skydiving charity challenge is bound to be filled with great memories. Fly solo or pull a team of friends together for any of the below dates. Either way, you know it’s going to be an experience you’ll never forget!

  • Byron Bay: June 14 (closest JUMP! location to Brisbane and Gold Coast)
  • Perth: August 24
  • Wollongong: September 7 (a special Father’s Day Jump!)
  • Melbourne: November 15

Not sure if you’re up to the challenge? Our highest fundraiser last year, Krystyna Pollard who alone raised over $5,000, joined our Jump event in order to face her fears – it was her way of making a brave gesture in support of her mother’ fight against pancreatic cancer.

Krystyna told us, “I hope that by flinging myself out of a plane I can not only raise money so someone, somewhere can perhaps find a cure for this disease, but so I can face some fear of my own and overcome it. Just like mum is.”

This year we are also holding a very special Father’s Day Jump on September 7. We already have an extremely brave and inspirational team of four siblings who will be jumping in memory of their father who sadly passed away from cancer. We are so humbled that they have chosen the Australian Cancer Research Foundation to support in honour of their dad.

So, if you’re ready to face your fear, contact us today to register for the closest event to you!

The registration fee for an ACRF Jump! is $110 (non-refundable), together with a fundraising target of $2000 which will go towards world-class cancer research.
