R.A.C.E.S. Jumping!

Posted Thursday, September 23rd, 2010 at 11:09 am by Falling Illini

On the weekend of October 15-17 the Falling Illini will be jumping to support R.A.C.E.S., the Rape Advocacy, Counseling and Education Services. If you do a tandem jump this weekend, all of the profits will go towards this phenomenal cause. R.A.C.E.S. provides advocacy (legal and medical) and counseling for survivors of child and adult sexual assault and abuse, as well as professional training, prevention education, information and referral services to school and community groups in Champaign, Ford, Douglas and Piatt counties. R.A.C.E.S. also staffs a 24-hour rape crisis hotline, which provides 24-hour access to information, referral and advocacy services. All of their services are completely free.

For more information check out their website: www.cu-races.org or contact Annie at jackson.anniem@gmail.com.

So how will this event work? Well, the Falling Illini will be jumping Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this weekend. Because of the nature of the event, we can only take tandem jumpers for this weekend. On Friday we will be leaving around 2:30, so if you get done with class early you can come and jump Friday afternoon. The dropzone will also be offering plane and helicopter rides (prices currently unknown) throughout the weekend, along with lots of food. If you’ve been waiting to do your first jump this is a great opportunity.
