Skydive for Diabetes

Skydive towards a future where diabetes can do no harm: where fewer people get diabetes; where those with diabetes live well; and where ultimately a cure is found.

Aaron Nappin (pictured) from Cornwall dived for us last year and will be taking the plunge again this summer with his sister “Last year I decided to do something I would remember for the rest of my life, something I never thought I would have the guts to actually do but always thought would be amazing. I wanted to do something unforgettable in memory of my Nan who was a sufferer of Type 2 diabetes.  The freefall was amazing, it was so surreal, and seeing almost all of Cornwall from the air on such a glorious day was a privilege. I have never experienced something that felt calm and exhilarating simultaneously.  It has been an honour and a privilege to be a part of something such as this. This experience will sit in my heart with my Nan for the rest of my life. “
