Take to the skies and fight back

Have your say

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is urging people in Sheffield to take to the skies and fight back against the single biggest killer in the UK.

By signing up to do a tandem skydive for BHF, not only will you have the thrill of your life by jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet, you’ll also get to help others by raising money for life-saving research into heart disease.

The training and jump, which is completed on the same day, is available at 20 drop zone locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales in partnership with specialist parachute company provider, UK Skydive. The sky’s the limit when it comes to raising money, and if you reach over £400 in fundraising, you’ll be able to jump for free.

Heart disease is responsible for over 1400 deaths in Sheffield each year, the equivalent of three people every day.

We are appealing to the people of Sheffield to sign up today, become a heart flyer, and help us continue our fight to save more lives.
