Childhood cancer survivors jump from 13,000 feet for kids with cancer
On Saturday, September 4, 2021 at 10:00 am, three childhood cancer survivors from the Kids Cancer Care community took fundraising and awareness to new heights for children with cancer when they completed tandem jumps from 13,000 feet in the second annual Jump for a Cure at Skydive Extreme Calgary. Childhood cancer survivors Brad Rains, Adam Verheyde and Taylor Wheatley joined a group of skydiving enthusiasts and individuals from the cancer community to raise more than $17,000 for Kids Cancer Care during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. Organized by Calgary realtor Brian van Vliet, the family-fun event included stunt landing performances by professional skydivers, face painting and a 50/50 draw.
Here’s some of the footage from the event:
