The aim of the Skydive Challenge is to raise much needed funds to support the important work we do in providing social, recreational and sporting opportunities for people with disabilities.
Research shows there is a 30% participation gap in sport, recreation and social programs between people with a physical disability and their able bodied peers. Our aim is to narrow this gap. We want children and adults with a physical disability to have the same opportunities as their able bodied peers. Having a disability should not impact on your ability to lead a full and happy life.
THE SKYDIVE CHALLENGE
The skydive is organised through Skydive Geronimo www.skydivegeronimo.com.au.
Skydive Geronimo offers ‘Australia’s best beach skydives’ in two unique tourism destinations – Rottnest Island and Busselton, in Western Australia.
Skydive Geronimo’s team of dedicated and experienced staff provide outstanding tandem skydive experiences where first timers and dare devils alike, have the opportunity to skydive in two of Australia’s most picturesque drop zones.
The view is spectacular from 14,000ft as you free fall with your Tandem Skydive Instructor at 200kms per hour. The world then slows down as you glide over Busselton or Rottnest under your parachute, landing on the beach with friends and family waiting.
Your Skydive Challenge can be done at any time throughout the year however Challengers may be grouped together to improve promotional opportunities.
The normal cost for a 14,000ft skydive with Skydive Geronimo is $550 from Busselton or $600 from Rottnest. Rebound WA and Skydive Geronimo have partnered up to offer discounted skydives for supporters who fundraise for Rebound WA.
When a Challenger reaches their set fundraising goal, they will then pay the remaining amount to receive a discount voucher. This can be entered at the Skydive Geronimo checkout and the Challenger will receive their 12 month valid voucher.
