Skydiver: Peter Rickard-Green

Skydive 2020

I'm jumping out of a perfectly good plane because...

I want to make a difference for New Zealanders with vision loss. That's why I'm taking on the Blind Low Vision NZ Skydive! Every day, an average of six people turn to Blind Low Vision NZ for support with sight loss. I'm taking on this challenge so Kiwis of all ages who are blind, deafblind, or have low vision are empowered to live the lives they choose. 

I'll be jumping from at least 9,000ft and will be free-falling at over 200kmph! Please support me by making a donation to my fundraising page so that people with vision loss can live their lives without limits. Thank you in advance for your kindness!

Scared of Heights

Saturday 10th Oct
Okay, so maybe not the best thing to do if scared of heights, but I figure this - it’s more about being scared of hitting the ground right, not falling. 

Bungy jumping on the other hand is stupid IMO. If something goes wrong you’re screwed, right? Whereas with sky diving you have plenty of time to work things out if something goes wrong as you’re much higher up, right?

Thank you to my Sponsors

You could just stay in the plane until it lands again, but I have heard it's much more fun to jump out halfway through the flight!
