Why I Fly For Cancer Research

SDTB308240237161The Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) and the Australian Parachute Federation (APF) have joined forces to bring you our most exhilarating fundraising challenge yet!

‘Why I Fly’ has been developed as part of Blue September, an international campaign that actively promotes for research and awareness into men’s cancers.

With 1 in 2 men expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us will know someone affected by this terrible disease. ‘Why I Fly’ is the perfect opportunity to face your fears and skydive in tribute to a loved one.

When you sign up for our Blue September skydiving experience, you will be guaranteed a personal challenge with a difference as you raise vital funds for men’s cancer research.

‘Why I Fly’ is an extension of the ACRF’s successful ‘Jump’ programme where supporters skydive in tandem to raise money for cancer research in various locations around the country.

Our goal is to build ‘Why I fly’ into an annual national event that acts as an extended Father’s Day promotion. Through ‘Why I Fly’, we will celebrate and remember the men who are most important to all of us.

The APF exists to administer and represent the Australian sport of parachuting to encourage participation and excellence in performance. “We are delighted to partner the Australian Cancer Research Foundation to build what will become a unique promotion for both associations. At APF we are always looking for ways to promote the exhilaration of Skydiving and to join ACRF to promote cancer research for Why I Fly is a win for all,” said Brad Turner, CEO of APF.
