Irene is 101 years old. She has skydived at SA Skydiving before, about a year ago to celebrate her 100th birthday. She has travelled the World solo, flown in gliders and is now aiming to become the World's oldest skydiver to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia.
PLEASE DONATE HERE:
On July 16th Irene will once again take to freefalling the skies from 15,000. Channel 9 and Hit 107 will be covering the special World record jump, with the whole aim to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia.
Skydiving from 15,000ft, Irene and her Instructor Jed Smith will accelerate to speeds exceeding 200kph. Freefalling for over a minute, they will then cruise the skies above Langhorne Creek and Lake Alexandrina for around 5 minutes before landing in front of the clubhouse where loved ones, supporters and media will be cheering her on.
There will be a celebratory BBQ and drinks at the clubhouse.
In an exciting addition to Irene's jump, Hit 107 presenter Angus is working towards the completion of SA Skydiving's solo skydiving course to jump with Irene on the day.
Donations can be made here. Please support this amazing lady.
