Comment from Rebecca, Bowel Cancer UK Skydiver

“Doing the Big Jump for Bowel Cancer was easily one of the best experiences of my life so far – jumping out of the plane from above the clouds is a sight I will never forget. The day was made even more special by meeting other fundraisers who were affected by bowel cancer and hearing their stories. They helped to give me courage to do the skydive!”

 


Can’t make that date? Get your own skydiving place on another day at one of 18 locations across the UK and fundraise for us.
