Ready for the thrill of a lifetime with the added thrill of helping a seriously good cause? On Sept. 27, 2014, Skydive Spaceland-Houston and Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF) are attempting to break the current Guinness World Record of 251 tandem skydives completed in a single location in one day by doing 400 or more! The proceeds from this event benefit CCRF, which supports children under 18 and their families facing the hardships of cancer through financial aid, gift, research, and camp programs. Almost anyone 18 years of age and up, and up to 280 pounds, can skydive! Common skydiving questions…
What do I do to participate and skydive?
1) Register online and start raising money for your jump
- Raise $300: Get a FREE tandem skydive at Skydive Spaceland-Houston!
- Raise $500 or more: Get a FREE tandem skydive and professionally edited, high-definition video and photos of your jump
Anyone raising $500 or more will be entered in a drawing for some great prizes as well! You can raise money out of your own pocket, by getting donations from friends/family/co-workers, selling crafts, throwing down challenges like the current ice bucket craze for ALS… get creative! Register now!
*All fundraising monies need to be collected by September 22, 2014 to ensure your free tandem skydive jump. If you do not raise enough for your jump, you can make up the difference out of your own funds to skydive. Otherwise we will gladly accept your donation to the charity.
Questions? Contact Holly at CCRF (email or call her at 713-389-5544).
2) Attend a pre-registration event (optional but highly recommended)
Plan to attend one of several free pre-registration events being held around the Houston area in the week leading up the the Sept. 27 record attempt to complete paperwork, submit your donations, and do the required ground training for your skydive! It is not absolutely required to attend a pre-registration event, but it will help get everything in order before record day so you can just show up and jump, and we can run the record event efficiently.
This is also a great opportunity to meet some of the Skydive Spaceland instructors and CCRF staff and get answers to any questions you might have.
