Jump for the Children of ALYN: NEW DATE -- June 28th, 2019

For the fourth year, ALYN Children’s Hospital invites you to sky-dive with us!

On June 28th (Friday morning), we will be sky-diving with Paradive over Hof HaBonim. This is one of the most beautiful skydiving sites in the world, and skydivers enjoy the amazing views of the sea, the countryside and the amazing shoreline. Dedicate your jump to the children treated at ALYN Hospital by donating and raising money from friends and family. 

ALYN specializes in treating children severely injured in accidents, acts of terror, or other trauma. Our goal is to return them to their families, empowered to live as independently as possible. Events like sky-diving help ALYN provide these children with the services they need.

More Information

For 2019, the registration fee is $110 or 400 shekels, which covers most of the actual costs to ALYN of your participation. Jumpers commit to raising a minimum of $550 or 2,000 shekels for the young heroes at ALYN Hospital. 

If you raise 4,000 ILS, you will jump from 14,000 feet. The extra 2,000 feet is all free-fall!

After you register, we will send you a fundraising page that you can use to receive online donations from friends and family. You can personalize this page with a picture of yourself and special text about why you are jumping. (We can also use a default text if you prefer.)

Looking for an incredible Bar/Bat Mitzvah project that will provide lifelong memories while helping those less fortunate? Why not come sky-diving with ALYN?

We can arrange a tour of the hospital to meet the kids who will be helped by this project. Then from friends and family, raising the 2,000 shekels will be easy.

We think that with enough inspiration, many times that can be raised by a motivated young man or woman.

Bring the whole family to witness the event! 

 

Bring your family and friends to watch you jump.

The morning starts with light refreshments and an instructions. Then the jumpers are divided into groups. An instructor will take each group to get them suited up and provide instructions.

The aircraft takes each group up and then returns to pick up the next group.

One year, an extended family of 30 adults and kids joined together to sponsor their grandparents. Everyone came to watch and enjoy the food and atmosphere!

FAQ

Safety is extremely important to us.

Before the jump, there is a mandatory instruction meeting. Afterwards, the instructors will fit you with a flight suit and headgear. You can ask them any questions of express and concerns, they have heard it all.

You will be doing a tandem jump, which means you jump while attached to a highly experienced professional guide for the entire duration of your jump. All you need to do is take that first step. After about 45 seconds of free fall, the instructor pulls the cord and you spend the next few minutes slowly gliding back down to the ground.

 

We will give you a custom ALYN T-shirt.  Other than that, wear loose fitting clothing and shoes with closed toes (no sandals). Women should not wear short skirts. Leave all your valuables with a friend on the ground. You cannot take a phone or camera, but there are many options to photograph and video your jump.

From the time you suit up until you are back on the ground is about 30 minutes. We will split everyone up into groups of six and a group will board the plane every half an hour. We will let you know in advance what time your flight is. Our goal is to have the flights in the morning so you can enjoy the rest of the day.

We will be serving a light breakfast while you wait for your flight. 

ALYN Hospital treats children from infancy through adolescence who require intense rehabilitation and therapy. Some children come to ALYN after being injured in terrorist attacks or car accidents. Others suffer from degenerative congenital disease that make mobility and independent action difficult.

ALYN treats each child with a customized plan that meets that child’s specific needs. Often the cost of this treatment exceeds the budget allotted by the government and ALYN must raise the rest of the funds independently.

Those who participate in our projects save lives with the donations they raise for ALYN.
