Dare to Dive
Skydive for FREE when you to raise $600 (or more) for Alzheimers Northland to help us to support even more families in Northland.
Our special Dare to Dive skydiving day is taking place on Saturday 20th July 2019. This year we are going even higher! You will do a 12,000ft Tandem Skydive! That’s 45 seconds of freefall followed by a majestic float with views across the Bay of Islands. You have from now until then to raise funds and hold your nerve! Last year our very first Dare to Dive event was a huge success and this year we want even more people to jump for Alzheimers Northland. As an independent charity working hard to care for the skyrocketing numbers of clients being referred to us we could certainly do with your support.
Before you consider taking the leap we thought there are a few things you should know:
Teams – Dare someone else to Dive! This is the perfect activity for a workplace team, you can raise the funds together and then nominate someone to jump! Your boss? A special ballot? Flip a coin? Workplace rewards for team player of the month?
Sponsorship We ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of $600 for Alzheimers Northland. Don’t let that limit you – the more you raise the more families we can support! Your place will be secured by paying a $50 deposit. The $50 deposit will be refunded to you on completion of the event. We will send all the information you need to help get you started with your fundraising including hints, tips and details of how to collect funds online through our partner site Everyday Hero.
The Jump Day Our special jump day at Skydive Bay of Islands, Kerikeri is Saturday 20th July. It will be a hoot to have all our jumpers together, you can watch and support your fellow jumpers and join in the landing celebrations! If we experience adverse weather conditions on the day your jump may need to be postponed. You will be given all the details you will need to re-book directly. On the day you will be given everything you need on the day including jumpsuits head protection, an aeroplane and even an expert strapped to your back! If you want to carry out a jump from higher up you can but you will need to pay the difference yourself. You will also need to pay for photos and videos directly with Skydive Bay of Islands, these are not included. If you can’t make this date but still want to Jump for Alzheimers get in touch and we can arrange the same deal for another date.
