The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis, and those who care for them. We invest in cutting-edge research, drive up standards of care, and provide support for everyone affected by the condition.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic condition that slowly destroys the lungs and digestive system. There are over 10,000 people living with cystic fibrosis in the UK; only half will live to celebrate their 40th birthday. Over two million people in the UK carry the faulty gene that causes cystic fibrosis - around 1 in 25 of the population.
We believe that cystic fibrosis is beatable, but we need your help.
We're looking for people from all over the country to get involved! The great news is that you can jump for free - all we ask is that you raise a minimum level of sponsorship.
Think how amazing it would be. Close your eyes and imagine standing at an open doorway 10,000 feet from the ground. Feel the rush of adrenaline as you leap into a free fall at over 120mph!
Then the canopy opens and you glide through the sky, absorbing the tranquil atmosphere, and knowing you're supporting a worthy cause at the same time.
A 'Tandem Skydive' is so called because you freefall through the air harnessed to a professional instructor.
What's stopping you?
Too scared? You will be jumping with a trained professional, so don't be.
Feel too old? One lady jumped at the age of 95, so that's no excuse!
Too unfit? Almost anyone can take part, and we promise you will have the experience of a lifetime!
Think you can't fundraise? Nonsense! We have hundreds of ideas to help you reach the target, and we'll support you every step of the way.
Share the fear and increase the fun whilst raising funds to assist CFT sufferers.
