KITERIGHT IS THE WORLDS FIRST CHARITY DEDICATED TO USING KITE-SPORTS IN ALL ITS FORMATS TO HELP, SUPPORT, EDUCATE AND DEVELOP PEOPLE OF ALL AGES WITH PHYSICAL, MENTAL HEALTH OR LEARNING CHALLENGES. The charity has two main aims: Firstly to increase access and participation in kite sports for these individuals, increasing their self worth, self esteem, community access and participation. The word “can’t” is not used in your vocabulary as we believe everyone no matter how severe their disabilities or challenge “can” participate in one way or another. We also reinvest in those who want to be involved in the KiteRight process, by helping them to become assistant instructors, or other positions within the charity all the way up to board level. Secondly to work with academic institutions such as Bournemouth University to engage in and commission on clinical research as to why Kite Sports can have such a profound effect physically and emotionally on so many people. This will involve Psychology, Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy and Nursing students and academics. We aim to publish research finding in academic and sports journals. We also engage with other student programmes including event management, product design, graphics, film and media and engineering.
SKYDIVE FOR KITERIGHT !
17 May 2013
Join us on a tandem skydive from 15,000. Catch your breath as you hurtle towards the ground in perfect control with the roaring wind in your ears, marvel at the views across beautiful south UK's countryside. Then, with a sudden tug, all goes quiet as the parachute opens, you drift gently to earth and your experienced instructor guides you to a feather soft landing. The smile on your face and your sense of achievement will last for months. This is truly a "Bucket List" experience not to be missed !
