BENEFITING: LEAP FOR LUPUS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2014
Leap for Lupus is an annual skydiving fundraiser to benefit the University of Washingon lupus research in the Rheumatology department. To date, over $70k has been raised. This fundraising page to increase visibility of this awesome direct-to-research charity. The primary method of fundraising is through people who do tandem jumping: if you raise $500, you get a free tandem skydive. Licensed jumpers go out on August 16-17th and a portion of their jump tickets and any raffle tickets purchased will also be donated to the foundation.
If you're interested in doing a tandem skydive, set up your own fundraiser and head out on August 16th! I'm simply setting up a donations account here to contribute directly research, no intention to do a tandem or any other skydive with the donated funds.
