Wish Jump is thrilled to be back for its EIGHTH year! Since Wish Jump began in 2011, over $200,000 has been raised for Make-A-Wish Northeast New York to use for granting wishes to kids and teens who live in the 518 area who have life-threatening medical conditions. Wish Jump will take place on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Skydive the Ranch in Gardiner, New York. More details to come, please follow along on Facebook and Twitter!
If you would like to participate as a Wish Jumper, be a sponsor, or if you just have questions, please contact event founder and organizer, Mary Kenney, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This ain’t no bake sale baby!
UPDATE: More than half of our jumps have been rescheduled after last weekend’s windy Saturday that put the kibosh on all our jumps! Most on Sunday August 6th. Progress!
SATURDAY, JULY 29 – JUMP DAY – Well, I guess after 6 years without a major weather issue, it was bound to happen?! All of our jumps were cancelled today because it was too windy, and therefore just too dangerous. We greatly appreciate Skydive the Ranch for making safety the number one priority! All of the Wish Jumpers are in the process of re-scheduling their jumps. Thank you to all the Wish Jumpers for being flexible and understanding. Dang you Mother Nature!
With all of that said, we have a very exciting announcement! Not only did we reach our fundraising goal of $30,000 for Make-A-Wish Northeast New York, we EXCEEDED that goal. As of this evening, our fundraising total is estimated at $39,785, and donations continue to come in. This is just AMAZING! Sincere thanks to each and every donor, and to the Wish Jumpers for working so hard to secure the donations from friends, family, and local businesses. You are just incredible!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Wishes come true because of you! Stay tuned for pics and videos of our jumps when they take place, and for fundraising updates!! “Like” our Facebook page for regular updates on all Wish Jump activity!
