An intrepid group from BECG will be taking to the skies to raise money for charity partner, The Brain Tumour Charity.
Brain tumours currently kill more children and young people under 40 than any other cancer.
With your help and generous donations, BECG is hoping to secure important funds to support the charity. The money raised will go towards funding research into cures, improving the quality of life of people living with brain tumours and into raising awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours among medical professionals and the general public.
Visit The Brain Tumour Charity website to find out more about how they’re making a difference.
Introducing the BECG skydiving team
Taking place on Friday 19 October over Salisbury Plain, the brave (and slightly bonkers) team from BECG will be throwing themselves out of a plane at 13,000ft attached to an experienced tandem skydive instructor.
The 13-strong BECG team includes Priya Shah, Sarah Wardle, Geoffrey Gaisie, Amy McNeill, James Bird, Matt Crisp, Alex Smith, James Atterbury, Jonny Torr, Adam Roberts, Ben Knock and Georgina Howard, led by squadron leader Krystian Groom, who has over 800 jumps under his belt.
After freefalling for around 40 seconds at speeds of around 120 miles per hour, their parachutes will open (we hope) and they will take around 5 minutes to gently descend back down to earth at a more leisurely pace.
If you’d like to support the charity skydive and make a donation to this great cause, visit the team’s JustGiving page. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated and go towards fighting brain tumours on all fronts.
