THE STORY:

On January 17, 2012 I was forced to face a parents worst fear. My youngest son, Mac, was diagnosed with cancer. 


On May 11, 2013 I was for again faced with my new worst fear. I had to try to learn how to live after Mac passed away at the age of 7 from Glioblastoma Multiforme. 


In honor of Mac, and all the family's who have been changed due to childhood cancer, I am again facing my fear and "Leaping for Lucy". Please consider donating to this incredible organization.

Lucy's Love Bus is hosting another wildly creative, adventurous, and super exciting fundraiser for the world's bravest children! This one is not for the faint of heart... in fact, you need to be nearly as brave as our Love Bus kids in order to participate as a fundraiser! On Saturday, June 17th, 40 of our most fiercely dedicated supporters will be helping Love Bus take flight by leaping 10,000 feet from an airplane and skydiving back to earth, in a heroic effort to raise much-needed funds for our hospital based integrative therapy programs that are growing like crazy! Our hospital-based program, called The Healing Room™, allows your donations to go ten times further in delivering comfort and quality of life to children coping with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by bringing yoga/meditation, massage, and music therapy to them right in the hospital.

Here's how it works: We are recruiting 40 mighty leapers who each pledge to raise $1,200 for Love Bus. Love Bus will cover the cost of each fundraiser's dive provided they raise $1,200 for the charity, and will provide quick and easy templates to help each skydiver reach their fundraising amount. Each person has the option of paying for their own photo/video of the experience for $90, payable to Boston Skydive the day of the event.
**Please note: according to safety regulations, all jumpers must be at least 18 years of age and weigh less than 230lbs. Jumps will be completed tandem with an instructor.

If you are interested in officially registering as a jumper, please create a fundraising page AND fill out a registration form at lucyslovebus.org/leapforlucyregistration. (Please also visit that page for instructions on how to edit your personal fundraising page!)

Each skydiver will have their own fundraising page so that they can track and thank their donors. All donations are tax deductible and will go a very long way in providing joy and relief to children who are suffering.

Here is a link to Boston Skydive Center, only 40 minutes outside of Boston in Smithfield, Rhode Island: http://bostonskydivecenter.com/

This event will run throughout the day until all 40 courageous leapers have had the thrill of a lifetime while raising money for children with cancer!
