12 amazing fundraisers jumped out of planes across the country on Saturday 7 July 2018. They raised a fantastic £9,000 to help us achieve our vision of a world where lives are no longer limited by Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

“I didn’t want to do the jump, but as we have always said, we have to make the most of every day and to not let fear stop us from achieving things. I wanted to show the boys that Daddy is frightened of things too, but that anyone can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. Of all the challenges I have taken on for Action Duchenne this was the hardest one, even though it was over so fast. It is amazing to be part of the Action Duchenne community, to have the option of doing incredible things which I would not do in normal life, but when I was descending 10,000 feet to the ground, the reality stung me emotionally and I was struck again by the main reason I was doing this, my son Samson.  Samson and his brother and sister came to watch my skydive and I was so proud as they cheered me on and shared in making memories”. - Alexis Ellison, Skydive Peterborough


"The jump day came (nerves were all over the place) arrived at jump site for 3 then waited till 8 to jump by then all the nerves had gone, kit on and ready to jump out the plane. It was such an amazing experience once in a life-time! And I got to do that whilst raising money for Duchenne to try help find a cure for little jack and all other people that (live) with Duchenne" - Sarah Keys, Skydive North
