Our community is always coming up with creative and exciting ways to raise money for the Rescue Helicopter Service. From racing in the Mongol Rally to holding Gala Dinners and even dressing up as Pirates. We thought we had seen it all. Until now. Introducing The Hundred Jump Project; the brainchild of local skydiving enthusiast Steve Gregor. Steve wants to set a New Zealand record and to raise money for the Canterbury Westpac Rescue Helicopter by completing 100+ skydives in one day.
“I wanted to take an idea that seemed impossible, and then not only make it a reality but do it to raise money for a worthwhile cause. The Hundred Jump Project is that idea, and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter is that cause,” says Steve.
There will be 2 planes, 3 pilots, 6 parachutes, 30+ ground crew. In addition to 1 jumper and 15 hours of daylight to complete the ultimate skydiving marathon. Skydiving Kiwis, located in Ashburton South Canterbury, is one of the most active sport skydiving dropzones in New Zealand. Perfect for this record attempt.
Safety is the biggest priority. Every person involved in the project is trained, qualified and practiced in their role. Taking place at dedicated skydive facility with the assistance, support, and advice from the country’s most experienced skydivers and jump pilots.
