Wish Jump 2016 to launch July 30

In a unique fund-raiser, about 30 participants will jump from a plane, with a goal of raising funds to support Make-A-Wish Northeast New York. This sixth annual event will be held again this year at Skydive the Ranch, Gardiner, NY.

The participants, including many first-time jumpers, are raising funds through this website  where online donations can be made. Expected among the jumpers are some wish teens and parents, as well as volunteer wish granters, chapter staff, and other supporters.

Volunteer wish granter Mary Kenney initially launched the idea as a fundraiser that offered a bit more adrenaline than a bake sale. Since the inception in 2011, it has drawn over 120 participants who have raised more than $130,000 in all.

She added that the participants are inspired by the wish children, who bravely face their challenges as they cope with, and most often overcome, their life-threatening medical conditions. “We welcome additional support, so donations can be made by visiting this site, with more information found at www.wishjump.com,” she said.

“This is an exciting way to help fund wishes for local kids,” said Make-A-Wish local chapter CEO William Trigg III. “We appreciate the efforts of everyone who is supporting this event, and made it such a success." As a Wish Jumper himself, he said, the support of so many people "really inspires us to take that leap of faith - right out of the plane!”
