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 brave volunteers to take on a high-flying challenge this May Bank Holiday weekend.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to do a sponsored tandem parachute jump and see the amazing Donegal Airport from above.
Donegal Airport won the title of ‘World’s Most Scenic Landing’ for the second time in a row this month. So, if you’ve been dreaming about crossing this spectacular journey off your bucket list, this jump is a very special opportunity to do it in style.
The sponsored parachute jump will take place on 4th, 5th or 6th May 2019. If you are interested in taking part please contact the No Barriers Foundation on Facebook (click here) or email email@example.com
Money raised will go towards supporting patients who use the No Barriers Exoskeleton, which was purchased for the benefit of patients in Donegal through a community-led project.
Johnny Loughrey, Director and Lead Physio for The No Barriers Foundation said: “This year we are delighted to have two full-time No Barriers staff providing the Exoskeleton service for the Northwest
“Money raised via the jump will be used to help cover staff wages to be able to keep providing this service to those suffering from spinal injury, MS, brain injury and stroke around the North West for as low a cost as is possible for the Exoskeleton user.
“Any additional revenue will be used to help acquire new much-needed exercise equipment to create an inclusive gym environment in Donegal. This gym will allow wheelchair users and those with varying levels of mobility to train side by side with others within their community.”

Taking part in the 2019 No Barriers parachute jump is one way to support this life-changing local project.
