My story

[p]Funny thing really, my biggest fear in life is flying, so jumping out of a plane is not a comforting thought, however, sometimes you have to try these things once, especially when it is in aid of fundraising. The suggestion came up and I thought it would be a very interesting way to raise money and do something for the school, especially seeing as though I am conquering a fear, as they say, 'feel the fear and do it anyway'![/p][p]My Son, Max is in year 7 at Gordons, going to year 8. He's enjoyed the school, he is terribly fearless and is in a way my inspiration to do it, he seems to just take life as it comes, he's supported me in all my crazy ventures, I've completed an Ironman, travelled extensively for work, tried new things like skiing, but he's always been there to help and support. In a way, it is a 'pass it on' concept. [/p][p]I've never completed a skydive, whilst I am scared as I am sure a lot of people are, I am also excited to push myself out of my comfort zone and help contribute towards raising money for the school, I was never good at baking cakes anyway. [/p]
