Falling to Support Juvenile Diabetes 2003 is a third party charity fundraiser created to increase awareness of Type 1 Diabetes and collect donations to find a cure. All proceeds from this event will be donated to JDRF.
What's Happening Now
Danvision productions will be documenting the event. Videos will be available for purchase at a later date. More info later.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
We have received word that world famous travelers, Rufus and Ruby will be joining our event and perhaps even participating in the skydiving.
We have secured a remote radio broadcast. WCTH Thunder Country 100.3 will provide music and live coverage of the jumps.
T-Shirt negotiations have begun. We are planning on placing the 'Falling to Support' logo on the back and JDRF's logo over the left front. Skydivers' shirts will also sport the word Skydiver on the right sleeve.
We have begun sales of our raffle tickets.
Thanks to Fred Whitsitt of Skydive Miami we now have an airplane. We will be using a Casa provided by Paul Fayard of Carolina Sky Sports.
