Unleash your inner superhero and help save lives

28 March 2014

Superhero skydivers

Sign up to St John Ambulance’s fundraising Superhero Skydive or Superhero Stroll

Think of superheroes, and you probably picture caped crusaders soaring through the skies, and swooping down to earth to rescue people in peril. The kind of thing you only get in comic books, right? Wrong!

We are challenging people to unleash their inner superhero with two fantastic new fundraising events – the Superhero Skydive and the September Superhero Stroll.

Superhero Skydive

By signing up for our Superhero Skydive this June, you will get to experience the exhilaration of having the wind in your hair and the view of the earth below you. The money you raise will be used to teach everyday people the skills to be the difference between life and death.

We have partnered with Skyline Promotions in a national initiative to raise funds while providing an exciting day which many people only dream of. Training and the jump are completed in one day and those taking part will experience the jump harnessed to an experienced parachute jumper.

And you have the option to come dressed in your favourite superhero costume too!

Beverley Russell, Community and Events Manager for St John Ambulance, said: ‘Anyone who has ever dreamed of flying like a superhero, and experiencing the thrill of the wind in their hair and the view from above should sign up!’

‘You’ll have an unforgettable experience, and people in communities across the country will benefit as a result.’

September Superhero Stroll

If skydiving’s a leap too far, you can still help save lives by signing up for the September Superhero Stroll – just gather your friends, colleagues or classmates and plan out a sponsored walk wearing your favourite superhero costume. Don your cape, dig out that mask, and get set for the most fun first aid fundraiser around – the Superhero Stroll!
