Blind Foundation Skydive

Saturday 7 December 2019

Imagine stepping out of an open plane at 13,000ft, feeling the wind rushing past you as you freefall through the clouds. Now, you can make that a reality – for free!

Here’s your chance to experience the thrill of a lifetime – all while changing lives. Join us for the Blind Foundation Skydive! The money you raise will help Kiwis who are blind or have low vision live their lives without limits.

Ready for take-off? We’re jumping in Auckland, Taupō, Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown.*

Take it from some of our courageous jumpers in 2018:
Maryanne skydiving

“I thought I just can’t pass up this opportunity. I thought the fundraising would be the hard part, but my friends, family and workmates were legends and I was stoked to raise $1,846. The jump was incredible and I can’t wait to do it again this year.”

– Maryanne, Auckland

Andrea skydiving

“It was amazing! The guys were incredible and made me feel so at ease. There was no time once you got to the door of the plane to even think about being scared. The freefall was something else!”

Andrea, Christchurch

“As an 11-year-old it was one of the most thrilling things I’ve ever done in my life, from fundraising through to the skydive! I was a little scared when going up in the plane but by time I touched the ground again I realised I really loved it. Fear is temporary, Achievement is permanent”

–  Nastacia, Hastings

Heidi skydiving

“I just did it! It was incredible, still feeling the high… just riding it. Thank you so much for hooking me up and getting me to jump. I can’t wait to do it again, maybe I’ll become a skydiver?”

– Heidi, Queenstown
