Skydive for free!

Date: 
1 Mar 2018 to 1 May 2020

WheelPower are looking for people from all over the country to take on a challenge of a lifetime and skydive from 10,000ft in the sky. During an adrenaline rush you will never forget, your fears will soon transform to exhilaration as you leap from the plane and start freefalling at 120mph. On top of this imagine the self-satisfaction having raised vital funds for a charity that transforms the lives of disabled people.

Fundraising and Costs

Each of the three types of jumps are free, with a £70 deposit that can be taken from your sponsorship proceeds. 

Your fundraising will make a huge difference to the lives of disabled children and recently injured adults. It could help WheelPower fund the opportunities like our introduction to sport events or providing the vital equipment that enables an individual to take part in wheelchair sport. 

“My first sports wheelchair was like letting me run again, it gave me independence, ambitions and hope. WheelPower helped fund my first racing chair and without such fantastic support I wouldn’t be where I am today; a Paralympic and World Championship finalist”
