Take on the leap of a lifetime
Skydive for MDUK and you can make a real difference. By the time you land, you’ll have funded nine hours of groundbreaking research.
Paige from London signed up last year and had this to say about why she took on the challenge.
I took on a skydive for MDUK, to help raise funds for people living with a muscle-wasting condition. I liked to think I made some kind of small impact on people’s lives. So if like me, you feel like you can help make an impact on people who are living with a form of muscular dystrophy, why not sign up today and take on the challenge?”
Your local 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 £399 each – that’s enough to fund nine hours of vital research. And we’ll help you every step of the way.
Do you know someone who might want to skydive and help us beat muscular dystrophy? Why not share this event with them!
