Take the Leap: Join the Abel Foundation Skydive and Make a Difference for Mitochondrial Disease

Skydiving for charity can be a life-changing experience that not only gives you an adrenaline rush but also helps to make a real difference in the lives of those affected by mitochondrial disease.

On Saturday, June 25th, 2023, the Abel Foundation Skydive is taking place at Netheravon Parachute Centre, and they want to invite you to joint them in this cause.

The Abel Foundation is a local charity that provides emotional and practical support to families affected by mitochondrial disease. This rare genetic condition can cause a range of symptoms, including muscle weakness, seizures, and developmental delays. The foundation is dedicated to helping those affected by mitochondrial disease by funding research and providing valuable resources.

The Abel Foundation Skydive is an exciting opportunity to support this worthy cause and experience the thrill of skydiving. Participants are required to raise a minimum of £345, which includes their jump and a £200 donation to the charity. The funds raised will go towards supporting families affected by mitochondrial disease and furthering research into the condition.

This event is an excellent way for people to challenge themselves and make a difference in their community. The experience of skydiving is unlike any other, and the opportunity to support a worthy cause makes it all the more rewarding. Participants will have the chance to free-fall through the sky, with nothing but the wind in their faces and the ground rushing up to meet them.

It’s worth noting that Jordan Wylie MBE, one of the hunters in the popular television series ‘Hunted’ on Channel 4, will be joining the Abel Foundation Skydive to support this worthy cause. As a patron of the charity, Jordan Wylie is passionate about making a difference in the lives of those affected by mitochondrial disease, and he is looking forward to taking up the challenge of skydiving to help raise funds and awareness for the cause.

Jordan Wylie is no stranger to challenges and is known for his adventurous spirit. His involvement in the Abel Foundation Skydive is a testament to the significance of the event and the impact that the funds raised will have on the charity’s work. By joining Jordan and other participants in the skydive, you will have the opportunity to make a difference and be part of something truly special.

The Abel Foundation Skydive is open to everyone, regardless of their level of experience. All participants will be given full training and instruction on the day, so they can feel confident and safe during their jump.
