Jump to the CHALLENGE
for Rainbow Hub
Sky Diving is one of the most incredible experiences out there, which everybody who has completed one will attest to. Some even go as far to say it’s therapeutic, with the term “Sky Therapy” being thrown around in some circles.
In this case, not only will you be marking a life-changing day for yourself, but doing so in aid of Rainbow Hub will mean you help us change lives for children and young people affected by neurological disorders or brain injuries. Allowing us to continue to provide our services and support that make a huge difference in the quality of life for the lives we touch.
If you or someone you know is hungry to take part in this thrilling activity then you’ve landed in the right place. We are also happy to answer any enquiries with first-hand staff experience of what you can expect.
Skydive from 11,000ft with fully qualified British Parachute Association instructors, reaching speeds of approximately 120mph. This event is the best way to experience freefall and get a taste of this adrenaline fuelled extreme sport whilst helping children and young people with disabilities.
Rainbow Hub have a number of places available which are on a first come first served basis – so be quick!
FUNDRAISING & COSTS
We require a £50 non-refundable deposit to secure your place which covers a small proportion of the actual jump cost. In addition, we then ask each participant to raise a minimum of £450 in sponsorship which can be done online (for example via our Justgiving event links) or by paper sponsorship forms.
HOW TO SIGN UP
Please email/contact Emma Parish to check places are available. You will then be sent a registration form to complete.
Age is just a number, although we have to start somewhere!
To do a tandem skydive, you will need to be at least 16 years old and have your parent or legal guardian’s permission until age 18. Please ensure you bring your ID with you if you are under 18. There is no upper age limit, but applicants aged 70 and over should request a British Parachute Associate Medical Certificate for completion by their doctor before their skydive.
With skydiving, weight is essential
Nobody likes to talk about their weight, but with skydiving, it is essential for your and your instructors safety that we have to work within certain parameters.
The minimum allowable weight for any course is 8 stone, the maximum allowable weight for any course is 13 stone for females and 15 stone for males, but body mass index will also be taken into account. We appreciate that some people will fall outside of these limits, but are still fit and active, so if this is the case, please call the office to discuss your individual requirements.
Please don’t be offended if you are weighed on the day. It is a requirement of all of our jumpers, and you will be asked to step on the scales prior to jumping.
