SCI Awareness Day Summer Skydive
16 May 2020
Sign Up Fee: £50
Fundraising Target: £520 (excluding GiftAid)
Hinton in the Hedges, Northamptonshire
Thrill seekers required: take on the challenge of a lifetime this Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day, by leaping 13,000ft to support spinal cord injured people rebuild their lives.
As a ‘Tandem Skydive’ you will be guided through the whole process by a highly experienced instructor, and will be ready to jump after a short induction and training session. Reaching speeds of up to 120mph, it is an absolutley exhilarating experience and if that wasn’t enough, you will also have the option to do a few barrel rolls and loop the loops on the way down. For the truly brave you might even get the chance to steer!
And coming the day after SCI Awareness Day 2020, it will be an absolutely perfect time to help raise funds, but also lots of awareness about what we do as a charity to support people post-injury. The airfield is fully accessible so please do feel free to bring friends, family and supporters (including four legged ones) and there will be plenty to keep you entertained before the jump!

Due to restrictions put in place by the British Parachuting Association (BPA) and because Skydiving is a physically challenge activity, anyone who has sustained a spinal cord injury would only be able to participate on the day subject to an assessment by the event providers, and a written letter of clearance being provided from a specialist spinal consultant who is familiar with that case. However SIA would be happy to try and source alternative venues and means of participation for any persons looking to take part.
