Jump for the Children of ALYN: July 24

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

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.

Want to help the kids at ALYN without having to jump? You can be a VIRTUAL sky-diver! We’ll give you a fundraising page and you can send it to your friends and family. They will probabaly be happy that you are not going to do something so crazy and will sponsor your non-jump.

QUESTIONS? Contact us!

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.
