Painting the Sky Pink by Jumping Off the Plane!

| June 3, 2014 | 0 Comments

MJTam-SkydiveBreast Cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States other than skin cancer and that it is also the leading cause of cancer death in women so when I was asked to skydive to help fund cancer research, I was happy to jump on in and jump off a perfectly good plane! The Chicagoland Skydiving Center is once again hosting #OperationPinkSky to help raise money for breast cancer research and I am excited to be part of it. You can find my fundraising page in here and even more exciting – I will be jumping with my little brother Patrick aka Itoondaddy. We also happen to be in good company and below are a list of local Chicagoans whose names you will probably recognize.

Dina Bair – WGN Midday News anchor, founding Board member of “Dancing with Chicago Celebrities” One in a Million campaign
