WHAT WE'RE DOING
On October, 27 2012 at Skydive Atlanta in Thomaston, GA, we will be jumping out of perfectly good airplanes to raise funds to help pALS in need and "Find hope at 14,000 feet." We will be making this a special tribute to Veterans with ALS (vALS) as well as all warriors battling ALS. Veterans are roughly 60% more likely to receive an ALS diagnosis than those who have never served.
This year the price is $200.00 this will include your jump, a catered meal, lots of FUN, and your AWESOME t-shirt (See the photo section here for views of the front and back of the shirt design).
***Please keep in mind that the $200 amount just covers fees (skydive fees charged by the venue and printing fees for the shirts, etc.) involved, so please fundraise to help support the foundation =)
Jumping Not Your Thing: It's still going to be a PARTY! Bring the kids, bring your friends...Bring complete strangers!
Fundraise to support the jumper of your choice, or recruit a jumper (that's always fun).
We will also have
- Lots of great BBQ by Papa WIllies
- A bounce house for the kids
- Helicopter rides (for a fee/donation that will allow those too scared to jump to still have a thrilling experience and contribute.
To Those Who are not familiar with ALS: ALS is a Motor Neuron Disease that affects a persons muscles eventually leaving them paralyzed unable to eat, breathe, or talk. There is no cure. The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is only 2-5 years.
Why Guardian Angels? While we are impatiently awaiting a cure, our PALS need help. ALS is a financially devastating disease. Most are not able to come up with the money for copay's on wheelchairs, breathing apparatuses, and proper beds much less power bills, gas bills, or mortgages to stay in their homes. This is why we chose Guardian Angels. Stu (president, founder, and chief donor) is a one man wrecking crew on the hardships of ALS patients. When no one else can help, Stu saves the day every single time. Pouring everything he has out to make PALS lives better. Please jump for this organization that happily meets the needs of our pALS each day. Please visit www.alsguardianangelsfoundation.com for more information or
