Come and skydive in Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Make Today Count event in 2018. By the time you land, you’ll have funded nine hours of groundbreaking research.

“For me, taking part in a skydive was the perfect opportunity to be part of an adventurous activity. I found the experience thrilling, exciting and nerve-wracking, considering I have never been on a plane before in my life and I was jumping out of one for charity.

The full experience for me was definitely worth the thrill and I am so pleased that I did it for my friend Ryan who has muscular dystrophy and couldn’t take part in the activity. Accomplishing the skydive and raising £450.00 for Muscular Dystrophy UK is a really big achievement in itself. I would certainly do it again.”
