Children’s Advocacy Alliance Reaches for The Sky




The Children’s Advocacy Alliance will hold a tandem skydiving event on Saturday, April 5 at Clinton Airport to raise money for abused community children.


The alliance, which is a nonprofit operation between the Children’s Advocacy Alliance and Court Appointed Special Advocates of the 20th Judicial District, is holding the innovative fundraising event with the help of community members who volunteer to skydive to raise moneyfor the organization.

The event is open to the public.  Volunteer jumpers pay a non-refundable deposit.


Jumpers who register to make the tandem jumps collect sponsorships for their jump and have a personalized sponsorship page to aid in their effort.

Each jumper is required to raise at least $500, $1,000 the goal.


Ozark Skydive Center, Lawrence county, Mo., promise a safe tandem jump for anyone brave enough to volunteer for this charitable event.  They give jumpers a short instruction session from their tandem instructor before jumps that will explain all technical and safety details. Jumpers have an expert


strapped to their back and will receive a DVD of their Leap of Faith.


Tess Fletcher, advocacy center director, said, “This will be a fun and exciting way for community members to be involved, as well as raise money to help support our organization.”


Anyone who would like to participate in the Leap of Faith as divers must be at least 18 years old and weigh less than 230 pounds.  They must register and pay the $100 non-refundable deposit before the March 1 deadline.
