Skydiving is a thrill like no other! It’s the ultimate adrenaline rush!

If you have ever wanted to tick off a parachute jump on your bucket list then here is your chance!

Skydive for MDUK this September and you can make a real difference to children and adults affected by muscle-wasting conditions. By the time you land, you’ll have funded over eight hours of ground-breaking research!

Join #Team Orange on Saturday 19 September and experience the thrill of freefalling from 11,000ft. Anyone over the age of 16 can take part in this amazing experience and jump with our fully qualified British Parachute Association instructors, reaching speeds of approximately 120mph.

Your local MDUK Regional Manager will support you throughout your event, and when you sign up you will receive a bespoke Skydive for MDUK pack, which will contain:

  • a branded T-shirt to wear when you jump
  • an information pack to help with all your fundraising needs
  • everything you’ll need to know for the BIG day

All we ask of our participants is to raise a minimum of £350 each – that’s enough to fund over eight hours of vital research.

Special Sponsorship deal – whoever raises the most sponsorship by the day of this event will receive a free Handcam package on the day. Valued at £95 the Handycam package is a hand mounted camera worn by your instructor, to give you an alternative view of your skydive whilst taking both video and stills simultaneously. Your instructor will capture everything from the moment you are kitted up, to the second you touch back down.
