Forthcoming Events

Skydiving 2017

Following William Reed's skydive which finally took place on 3rd June we have Paulina Wodzynska, who will be taking the plunge on August 19th.  Paulina has chosen to support Leukaemia Busters because her father is currently receiving treatment for leukaemia - thank you Paulina.  You can support her here

Also taking to the skies to jump out of a perfectly good plane on 27th August will be Samantha Dewey,  Justine Brunnschweiler and Ken Walker from Jellyfish Solutions in Swanmore.  You can sponsor the team here 

If you were unable to join us on 13th May but would like to skydive for Leukaemia Busters on another date you can jump with GoSkydive at Old Sarum in Salisbury or any other skydive school throughout the country.  Simply sign up with your local airfield and then let us know and we will send you sponsorship forms and provided you raise a specified amount of sponsorship may even help you out with the cost of the dive.  

GoSkydive would welcome anyone who wishes to jump for Leukaemia Busters - simply give them a call on 01722 568755 and book a jump.  

 

Here are some other events our supporters are taking part in.  How about joining them?

Ironman Vichy

Following his success in the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017 Andy Piller is going to be taking on the Ironman Vichy challenge on August 27th.  Andy wants to raise a total of £40,000 before his 40th birthday in September 2020 and hopes that sponsorship for this event will help him on his way.

Ironman athletes will swim in the beautiful Lake Allier (pictured below) , using the rowing race infrastructure to guide themselves through the course. The easy bike course in the country heads through the regions of Allier and Puy-de-dome, with exceptional views of the Chaine des Volcans d’Auvergne. The day ends with a running course on the shores of Lac d'Allier and through historical Vichy, where hundreds of spectators will line the course to cheer the athletes to the finish.

We hope that Andy's training is going well and that he has a great time taking part in this amazing challenge as well as raising lots of money for Leukaemia Busters.  You can sponsor Andy here .
