THREE Rockingham women will take the ultimate leap of faith on October 21 in memory of Jane Loring who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2013.
Trish Frost, Bindu Joseph and Tarron Brown will skydive from 14,000ft.
Their team, called the Juggernauts, has raised $2278 already for Breast Cancer Care WA, where Ms Loring was a board member.
“There have been many amazing women in my life who have fought this battle – some who have managed to kick its butt, and some who sadly didn’t get that chance,” Ms Frost said.
“I have seen so much fight, determination and courage that I decided I wanted to fight along side them, be determined to help and show a little bit of courage myself through the process.
“Jumping out of a plane is nowhere near as scary as what these women face, but if by doing this we can raise some awareness and much needed funds, then show me the door.”
Ms Joseph had similar reasons for taking the plunge.
“I have seen and experienced first hand what this awful disease can do to an individual and family,” she said.
“We have a collective responsibility to support efforts to find an end to this. This is a small contribution, but as someone famous once said, ‘many drops makes a mighty ocean’.”
Ms Brown said she would like to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer.
“Everyone knows someone who as suffered with breast cancer,” she said.
“It is a terrible illness that affects so many women. I thought more people might get involved if you’re challenged to do something you wouldn’t normally do for the donation.”
The Juggernauts fundraising target is $4500.
