My story

[p]Hello, I am raising money by doing a free fall sky dive for two charities very close to our family. [/p] [p]Alfie, my son has had Type 1 Diabetes since he was two. The JDRF are using funds to find a cure from having to administer insulin every time he eats along with constant Blood Glucose Level testing.[/p] [p][/p] [p]The second charity is Edies Butterfly Appeal. Edie, my Niece was diagnosed with a Ependymoma when she was six. Now aged 12, after six years of proton therapy and radiotherapy, She is now undergoing chemotherapy This rare form of Brain Cancer needs research to find cure and prevention to stop other children developing it.[/p] [p][/p] [p]The sky dive will be a solo free fall from approx 15,000ft. I will have two instructors with me but I will not be attached to them. I hate heights by the way so this won't be easy![/p] [p][/p] [p]I will be funding the jump myself, ALL money raised will be split 50/50 between the two charities.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Many Thanks,[/p] [p]Rich [/p] [p][/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
