    Default Parachute Jump For Charity

    My little girl who is 8 was diagnosed as having Epilepsy after having a couple of fits one a very serious one lasting over 90 mins.So I spoke to our Epilepsy care nurse about a parchute jump I was looking at doing later this year for a charity,I was looking at Cancer research as this is close to my wife and myself after loosing her farther to bowel cancer at the age of 52.Thing is we pay into this already and was looking to put the money to something to do with Epilepsy as this is not really thought of much.Has anyone done a simaler thing and how do you go about getting sponser money of people who do not live near to you ie setting something up on the web for them to pay into,as some of my family and friends live hundreds of miles away.Also has anyone done a freefall straped to an instructer,Im looking at one down Lincolnshire that do a 15000ft one so should be high enough I think. Any help on this is appreciated.

    Cheers for that.Its much appreciated,Im gonna try to set something up where people can pay into it online.Not sure what it is yet but have seen it done and just need more info on it.Will put sometjing up on here when I get it all sorted.I just think Epilepsy is not promoted enough and was very shocked when my little girl started to show signs of it.I just feel it needs some more support so thats why Im gonna do it for them.Will be in the summertime or late spring.

    I'll donate as well, I have also done a 15000ft tandem jump and its absolutly nothing to worry about. I loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Doesn't start till about 3m20s in so fast forward if you just want to watch the jump.

    Use a website called justgiving for the donations.
