Are there any restrictions?

To take part in The Big Jump you must be aged 16 or above.

You'll be required to sign a medical form before you jump declaring your fitness to take part – this will be sent to you once you have reserved a place. Pre-existing medical conditions don't mean you won't be able to take part, but if you suffer from any of the conditions listed on the form you'll need your doctor to agree it's safe for you to take part. Your doctor will need to complete a separate form found here.

What's included?

  • Big Jump welcome pack, including a fundraising guide full of top tips to meet your sponsorship target
  • An exclusive t-shirt to wear on the day

Bob bravely took to the skies for us earlier this year. Bob was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2019, and is doing very well after treatment.
