Free Fall for MS
Time & Location
About The Event
Skydive Vancouver Island is proud to support the FreeFall For MS Foundation and their focus on Multiple Sclerosis on Vancouver Island. According to MS Canada, "Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 1 in every 385 Canadians living with the disease. While it is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 20 to 49, younger children and older adults are also diagnosed with the disease."
Last season one of our beloved experienced skydivers was diagnosed with MS. Nick is a young and active individual but nothing prepared him for the changing effect MS would have on his life. Instead of giving up, Nick has fought back and now is dedicated and passionate about educating people about MS. His focus has turned to not only raising awareness about MS in our community, but also sharing his love for skydiving by spearheading the first ever in Canada Free Fall for MS fundraising event right here at Skydive Vancouver Island in Qualicum Beach, BC!
Nick's message to you:
"Raising awareness on the ground is one thing; but we're taking it to a jumping altitude 😎✈ !
For those that don't know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis last year. Like a lot of people, the letters "MS" didn't mean a thing to me. I'm eager to raise awareness about the disease & help educate people (as well as myself). Thanks to Gord Gauvin & Allison Cooney at Skydive Vancouver Island, Tamara Szewczyk, & the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, we will be hosting a skydiving fundraiser event in the beautiful Qualicum Beach; Not only for skydivers, but for each & every individual / family to have some serious fun & get educated !
Proceeds donated to my non-profit organization (Freefall for MS Foundation), as well as any money raised from the upcoming raffle (SO stoked on releasing these details!), will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Personally, it would be an honor if I could make a change in 1 person's life affected by Multiple Sclerosis, but if this event can do above & beyond just that, then all the better !..
That being said.. I'm not one to ask for anything; But if everyone could please LIKE & SHARE this, it would help hugely & I would appreciate it beyond belief ! ~ Blue Skies ~ Nick Mieczkowski"
