Raising Money for Cancer: Jump For The Rose

Raising Money for Cancer: Jump For The Rose

Published: March 1, 2016

Defuniak Springs, FL - Skydive North Florida is proud and honored to host Jump For The Rose from March 18th - 20th, 2016.

First time jumpers will make a tandem skydive from 14,000 feet (over 2 miles) with the purpose of raising awareness and funds for The Rose - a non-profit relying solely on donations, which provides support for uninsured or underinsured women to receive breast cancer treatment. The clinic's mission is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by providing screening, diagnostics and access to treatment for all women regardless of their ability to pay.

Jump for the Rose was founded by cancer survivor & skydiver, Marian Sparks, who received support from The Rose when she needed treatment and has made a commitment to turn around and help other women not only survive, but live to the fullest. Skydiving and The Rose changed Marian's life and she invites the public to join her for a skydive and to support future survivors in this fundraiser. Supporters who wish to participate by making a skydive can do so by calling 850-419-3580 or emailing skydivenorthflorida@gmail.com.
