BENEFITING: ALS GUARDIAN ANGELS FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: ALS GUARDIAN ANGELS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2013
My name is Mickey Johnston and I was diagnosed with ALS, 2-1/2 years ago. I am not doing this for myself. I am doing this for those that are suffering with this desease, way beyond what I am dealing with.
I did this skydive thing a year ago and decided once is enough. HOWEVER, if I reach my goal of $3000.00 I will jump again. So...think carefully before you DONATE. Do you REALLY want me to HAVE to jump out of a perfectly good airplane?
EVENT DATE: OCT 26, 2013
Wings for Warriors! Operation angel drop is set to commence!
When: 10/26/13- 10:00AM - Sunset, followed by an afterparty that will likely go LATE =)
Where: Skydive Atlanta
2333 Delray Road Thomaston, GA 30286

THANK YOU to ALL for your support!
What we are doing?
We are taking to the skies and will be jumping out of perfectly good airplanes to raise funds to help pALS in need and "Find hope at 14,000 feet." We will be making this a special tribute to Veterans with ALS (vALS) as well as all warriors battling ALS. Veterans are roughly 60% more likely to receive an ALS diagnosis than those who have never served.
This year the price is $200.00 this will include your jump, a catered meal, lots of FUN, and your AWESOME t-shirt (while they last, sign up soon to ensure you will have one available)
***Please keep in mind that the $200 amount just covers fees (skydive fees charged by the venue and printing fees for the shirts, etc.) involved, so please fundraise to help support the foundation =)
Jumping Not Your Thing: It's still going to be a PARTY! Bring the kids, bring your friends...Bring complete strangers!
*** Please help us Fundraise*** to support the jumper of your choice, or recruit a jumper (that's always fun).
We will also have
- Awesome food
- A bounce house for the kids
Why we are doing it?
To Those Who are not familiar with ALS: ALS is a Motor Neuron Disease that affects a person’s muscles eventually leaving them paralyzed: unable to walk, talk, eat, and eventually…breathe. There is no cure. The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is only 2-5 years.
Why The ALS Guardian Angels? While we are impatiently awaiting a cure, our PALS need help NOW. ALS is a financially devastating disease. Most are not able to come up with the money for copay's on wheelchairs, breathing apparatuses, and proper beds. Very few can handle paying for the 24/7 caregiving that pALS require, much less power bills, gas bills, or rents to stay in their homes. This is why we chose Guardian Angels. Stu (president, founder, and chief donor) is a one man wrecking crew on the hardships of ALS patients. When no one else will help, ALS Guardian Angels is there, pouring everything they have into making PALS lives better. Please jump and help us fundraise for this organization that happily meets the needs of our pALS each day.
