23rd September 2023
Are you ready to jump into action for a good cause? The Alphabet Jump 2023 is the perfect opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone and support Dyslexia Ireland. We are seeking 26 brave participants - one for each letter of the alphabet. Sign up now and join us on September 23rd for a skydive experience you'll never forget!
Venue: Clonbullogue Airfield, Edenderry, Co. Offaly.
The Parachute Jump: A tandem jump or skydive is where you are attached to an expert tandem master and requires very little training. You jump from 10,000 to 13,000 feet, free fall for 30 seconds where you’ll reach 200km per hour before the tandem master opens the two-person parachute; then you glide down to the landing zone over stunning scenery.
The tandem master does all the work during the skydive and training only takes 20-30 minutes. Your assigned tandem master will brief you on all phases of your jump and ensure that you get the most from the experience while taking every precaution to ensure safety. All you need to do is enjoy the experience and take in the wonderful bird’s eye views!
Participants are asked to raise €600 minimum (€280 covers the reduced rate cost for a charity jump and the balance of funds raised goes to the Dyslexia Association of Ireland (DAI) to support our services for children and adults with dyslexia). Sponsorship cards are available from either the Dyslexia Association of Ireland or from the Irish Parachute Club. You can create a personal fundraising page on iDonate.ie or on Facebook. You can also opt to donate all of the funds raised to DAI and pay for the sky-dive yourself directly. Participants must be aged 18 years minimum. Please contact the Irish Parachute Club (Tel. 1850 260 600 or email [email protected]) if you need additional information on restrictions or the technical aspects of skydiving, or check out the FAQs on their website.
If you are ready for this amazing challenge, please email [email protected] to sign up now!
