Jump at Life!
A national non-profit charity dedicated to introducing
the joy of skydiving and tunnel flight to terminally ill young adults.
This journey started
when Dana Block wanted to fulfill a bucket list item by skydiving. You see, Dana was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer on Valentine's Day, 2012. She was 18 years old at the time and given
just two years to live.
Dana made her first tandem jump with her family in October 2014 at Skydive Arizona. That extraordinary experience changed the way Dana saw her life. For once she was without pain or fear of the unknown. She was alive in the moment, animated in spirit - captivated by the freedom of freefall. It was an experience that helped her realize that everyone at some point needs to face their unfounded fears and 'jump at life'. All it takes is someone behind you supporting you to do it. It was at that moment that the concept of Jump at Life and a 'Sky Warrior' was born.
The mission of Jump at Life is a passion for us because we know that there are other young warriors out there who are facing a similar battle as Dana. By giving them the support they need to face their fears we help to deliver a message of freedom, one tandem jump and one tunnel flight at a time.
