Skydiver: Stuart Thurlow

Skydive 2020

Stu's Super 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! Last year my mum did it and I was inspired to do it! I wear glasses, I value my eyesight. 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!
