Going to New Heights in the Fight Against Cancer
Join the Cause. Have the Adventure of a Lifetime. Make a Difference.
In 2009, I had an idea – to overcome my fear of heights by “skydiving for a cause” … raising awareness, and funds, for cancer treatment research. My first solo “Leap for Life” raised more than $15,000 for the American Cancer Society – and from there, the idea took off by leaps and bounds … as people worldwide began reaching out to me to see how they, too, could join the “Leap for Life” movement.
The result? Close to 100 skydivers worldwide (many of them first-timers) jumped into action by joining me for the 2010 Global Leap for Life – where together we raised nearly $40,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation through this unique skydiving fundraiser.
That was just the beginning.
Join us this September as, in honor of National Children’s Cancer Awareness Month, we take to the skies for the 2011 Global Leap for Life to raise money for two important cancer charities. We’re leaping this year for Alex’s Lemonade Stand (www.alexslemonade.org) – the national not-for-profit founded by four year old cancer patient Alex Scott who was determined to raise money to find a cure for cancer by setting up front-yard lemonade stands … and which has, to date, raised nearly $40 million, carrying on Alex’s legacy of hope to find a cure for all children with cancer. In New York, we’re also leaping for Strength for Life (www.strengthforlifeny.org) – a NY-based not-for-profit dedicated to assisting men and women who are living with cancer reclaim their lives by providing weekly Exercise Classes and weekend Wellness Retreats at NO COST!
Due to unforeseen weather issues, Rick Collins and the NY based Leap for Life team will now be diving on Sunday, October 9th.
Leap for life.
Leap for children like Alex.
And, like Alex did, leap into action …
and join us as together we take our commitment to cancer fundraising
to new heights.
