How would you like to experience views of the magnificent Carrickfinn landscape from 12,000ft in the air – without a plane?
The No Barriers Foundation are calling on daring jumpers to take on a high-flying challenge this summer. The fundraiser is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for volunteers to see Donegal Airport from above during a tandem skydive.
The sponsored parachute jump will take place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of August 2018. If you are interested in taking part please contact the No Barriers Foundation on Facebook (click here) or 0749111010
Money raised will go towards the continued support to maintain the Esko Suit, which was purchased for the benefit of patients in Donegal through a community-led project.
This week, physiotherapists with No Barriers are undertaking level 2 training to perfect their skills with the Rehabilitation Suit.
Johnny Loughrey, Director and Lead Physio for The No Barriers Foundation said: “At the moment between Level 1 and 2 training we have around eight people using the Esko Suit with various conditions such as Spinal Injury, stroke, MS, and traumatic brain injury.
“Once we have the Level 2 training done we will push things a lot more and within 4 weeks we should be using at for approx 20 hours per week with that building each month.”
Dreams became a reality today as The No Barriers Foundation celebrated the introduction of a new Exoskeleton Robotic Suit to Donegal. Former Senator Jimmy Harte demonstrated this groundbreaking therapy tool, which will be transported to communities across the county in the coming weeks.
