June 28 - 3rd Annual Southeast MN Event, Rushford, MN
*We were disappointed this event was cancelled due to weather. Participants who raised the minimum donation amount receive rain checks for their tandem skydive at a nearby skydiving business. We're happy to say participants and donors contributed over $19,000 for this event to assist cancer patients in our communities.
August 1 & 2*- Chicagoland Skydiving Center, Rochelle, IL
August 8 & 9* - Skydive Twin Cities, Baldwin, WI
*For experienced skydivers, we will have load organizing with iFly instructors and you'll have an opportunity to buy tunnel time with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Jumps for Hope's mission! Add these dates to your calendar and make plans to join us!
"My own personality got me on the plane. The cancer pushed me out. There's not much fear once you have that diagnosis. You feel really fortunate and say to yourself, why fear anything?"
"You think about the challenges that people with cancer have had, what they have done just to stay alive and be here with us. If they can do that, I can do something that's out of my comfort zone that I never thought I would or could."
The mission of Jumps for Hope, a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is to raise funding for research of cancer causes and cures, as well as funding for patient needs and care.

"We all like to have thrills in life. We all like to have challenges. But sometimes we need a little push to get over that fear factor. In this case, I guess cancer has allowed me to get over that fear factor."
