First Freefall for First Fortnight
Are you looking for a personal challenge while highlighting the need for better attitudes to mental health? Are you up for doing your first tandem sky dive in aid of First Fortnight? We are looking for people of all ages for whom the idea of a skydive sounds like a real personal achievement.
First Fortnight is Ireland’s only mental health arts festival, aiming to challenge mental health prejudice through creative arts. Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health problems and, along with depression, they affect many people across Ireland.
Doing a skydive won’t cure anxiety but signing up, getting sponsorship and taking part will start conversations that will help to reduce the negative social reaction of experiencing anxiety disorder or any other mental health problem.
The First Fortnight inaugural “First Freefall” event will take place on Saturday 13th September 2014. We need your help to make this event a great opportunity to get people talking, while raising funds for the charity based First Fortnight organisation.
Funds raised will help to continue First Fortnight’s Centre for Creative Therapies, providing services to people experiencing homelessness and mental ill health in Dublin.
All participants will need to raise a minimum of €500 of which €240 (plus any extra raised) will go direct to First Fortnight.
Whether you want to do it alone, with friends or as a team we look forward to hearing from you.
To get involved just fill in the short form below and we’ll be in touch shortly with more info, welcome pack, sponsorship cards, etc.
