Have you got guts? Get out of your comfort zone this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and sign up for a Skydive!

Skydive for Bowel & Cancer Research

With a tandem parachute specially designed for two people, you will board an aircraft and soar to around 13,000 feet (approximately two miles high!).

When you and your instructor leave the plane, you will fall at about 120 mph, descending to 5,000 feet in around 40 seconds.

At this point, your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breath-taking and unique views of the local area and beyond. We guarantee that your tandem skydive will be one of the greatest experiences of your life.

Minimum fundraising target: £315

To sign up for your skydive, visit the UK Parachuting website:


Various dates and locations available. Please note, to secure your place, a £50 deposit is required upon registration.

Why get gutsy this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month?

At Bowel & Cancer Research, we understand that it can take a lot of courage to check out symptoms that may indicate bowel cancer. People put off going to the GP not only because of a possible cancer diagnosis but also because of the current tests.

We fund research to make diagnostics less invasive and embarrassing and treatments kinder. Raise money for research with a gutsy challenge this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and you will be helping us too.
