HILLARYS resident Kaleigh Kingstone will free-fall from 14,000 feet this month to support women with breast cancer.
This is the third year Ms Kingstone is taking part in Breast Cancer Care WA’s annual skydive fundraiser Jump for Jane on October 24.
“A lot of people think I’m crazy,” she said.
“It’s a massive rush, a massive thrill and I’ll continue to do it.
“People are willing to support something that they wouldn’t necessarily do.”
Ms Kingstone has formed a team called Breast in the West, with her mum Karen Kingstone travelling from the UK to join in the fundraiser.
“Even though we’re so far apart we do a lot of things together,” she said.
“She always wanted to skydive but never had the confidence to do it.”
Ms Kingstone’s aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and has since undergone a double mastectomy. Ms Kingstone said the fundraiser was for all women.
“I could be that ‘someone’ affected by breast cancer,” she said.
“I want those affected not to have to worry about anything other than themselves.
“I want them to know that there are women everywhere doing all they can to help support them in every way possible.”
