Skydivers jump from 13,000 feet for children with cancer
Calgary realtor Brian van Vliet and nine other brave souls took fundraising and awareness to new heights on Thursday, September 17 with a tandem skydive jump from 13,000 feet at Alberta Skydive Central. Gold is the colour representing the fight against childhood cancer, so the ten skydivers wore gold face masks in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place each September. The team of skydivers will keep the Jump for a Cure fundraising page open until mid-October. Their goal is to raise $20,000 for Kids Cancer Care. Here's some of the media coverage from the event.
