Skydive Challenge 2015

Release your inner daredevil and take the plunge with the OiN Skydive! Strapped to a qualified instructor, you will free fall from 15,000 feet at an exhilarating 120mph before parachute landing into the Drop Zone.

Your sky dive will take place at the North London Skydiving Centre, with a bunch of other adrenaline-junkies eager to make a difference!

Hundreds of orphan children across the world live on the dangerous streets, where they are vulnerable to the risk of child labour, sexual abuse, trafficking and even murder.

Kashmir alone has more than 600,000 orphans who are at risk of these threats, with the recent floods of 2014 have only adding to this number.

The Skydive Challenge is to raise awareness of the plight of these children, and to raise funds for a new orphanage to house local orphans that have lost their parents in war-torn Kashmir.

So gear up and fall through the clouds in this thrilling and unforgettable once in a lifetime experience!

Orphan children are by far the most vulnerable group in any society. The children that we work with are often found abandoned, forced to work as child labourers and vulnerable to all forms of horrific abuse.

There are more than 600,000 orphans in Kashmir alone- thousands of whom live without any shelter or protection. That’s why every pound you raise for in sponsorships will be used towards constructing a safe and secure residence for our orphans in our new Kashmir orphanage.

On the Day...

Comfortable clothing

Avoid very loose clothing or materials that would bunch up under a harness i.e. denim! Hoodies and collars may cause sight obstructions, so best to stick to sweatshirts!

Trainers

Tennis shoes seem to be best, but any pair of laced-up trainers will do!

Packed lunch

Make sure it’s enough to keep you sustained throughout the day, but nothing too heavy!
