Looking back now, I’m so pleased that we did it. We wanted to do something exciting to raise lots of money for a fantastic cause, and we did!

If you are looking for an exhilarating challenge, all while helping to fund our essential cancer prevention research, then a tandem skydive is for you.

When: Year-round
Where: At 20 locations around the UK
Registration fee: £70
Minimum sponsorship: £395 - £450, depending on location

The challenge

A tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. You only need 30 minutes of training before you jump, as you’ll be strapped to a BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified tandem instructor the whole time. You’ll soon be flying through the clouds from over 10,000 feet at up to 120 mph! It’s a truly magical ride!

We work with Skyline, who have over 20 years of experience organising charity skydives, and you can take part at over 20 locations throughout the UK.

Sign up to a skydive now

If you’re interested in taking part in a skydive, you can sign up now. With an initial registration fee of £70, simply raise at least the minimum sponsorship amount and you don’t have to pay anything else.

Why support us?

One in two people in the UK will now be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lives, but we know it doesn’t have to be that way. About a third of the most common cancers are preventable, simply by living a healthy lifestyle.

We fund research into the risk factors for cancer, related to diet, weight and physical exercise and use the research to create simple and usable resources to allow people to make simple changes to their lifestyle. All this will ensure that fewer people ever have to suffer the shock of a cancer diagnosis.

We’ll be here to support you along the way with fundraising tips and advice, materials to help you raise money, and a World Cancer Research Fund t-shirt.

Our fundraisers

Brother and sister team, Melissa and Sean, recently chose to skydive to support our cancer prevention research in memory of their grandmother who sadly passed away from lung cancer.
