At nearly 89 years old John put his life on hold to take care of his lovely wife who suffered from dementia. Sitting by her side until her last breath, John gave up his wants and needs for hers. Now it is time for John to start living for himself again. He has stated that he would love nothing more than to skydive. The doctor has given him the thumbs up to make his jump. With your help we can make that come true for him. Many people are unaware that this activity actually has many benefits to the body. More than the adrenaline rush, skydiving helps you de-stress, forget about your worries, and just enjoy life. The act of skydiving itself involves free falling from around 14,000 feet at a rate of 120 mph for a minute, and then pulling a parachute and peacefully gliding to the ground for 5 minutes.
