Great news!!! The legendary Sky Sports News presenter Jim ‘Deadline Day’ White will be joining our charity Skydiving efforts!! On July 21st, myself and colleagues Anna Edwards and Issy Rolfe will be hurling ourselves out of a plane to raise money and awareness for the Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK as part of our Cure For Dylan campaign and Jim’s jumping too!
Cure for Dylan is very close to all our hearts at Sky Sports News and colleagues Rob Wotton and Julien Walters have just completed a fantastic Cycle for Dylan ride that’s really boosted awareness of the cause. Other colleagues ran the marathon in honour of the campaign and now we’re jumping out of a perfectly good aeroplane for our challenge! Here’s more on what it’s all about.
Before the big jump, we’re getting some practice at the BodyFlight centre in Bedford as they’ve very kindly invited us to use their wind tunnel to get a sense of free fall before the big jump on Saturday.
Please give what you can and help secure a better future for little girls like Dylan. DONATE HERE. We’d love to smash our fundraising target. Rett can be reversed, we just need your donations. We’ve got Jim White to jump out of a plane, if you can commit to a small donation, we’ll be closer to beating Rett.
Check out Jim’s Soccer AM spoof. I think we’re going to enjoy this. Thanks everyone xx Updates and hilarious pictures to follow! You can stay up to date with all our efforts on twitter @SK_wakeboard @Bellaroffles @annaedwards3 @curefordylan @reverserett
