Receiving a cancer diagnosis can feel like you're in freefall... But you can help ensure no one faces cancer alone, by challenging yourself to Freefall For Cancer!
Cancer Council WA's first ever Freefall For Cancer will take place on 14 March 2020. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get outside your comfort zone and do something brave for West Australians affected by cancer.
Participants will raise funds in the lead up to a tandem skydive from the closest skydiving centre to Perth CBD. You'll exit the plane from 15,000 feet up and freefall for 60 seconds over the beautiful WA coastline before landing on Rockingham beach.
Our first participant to sign up was Betty Cottrell, our former Fundraising Manager.
"Our family, like so many other families, has been deeply affected by cancer," said Betty.
"I lost my brother to leukaemia and my mother to lung cancer; my dad survived kidney cancer and my sister survived breast cancer.
"I am also just about to turn 70, and this year my husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary."
What a way to celebrate a number of significant milestones, Betty.
