Help Support Our Event by Promoting the Jump
In 2009, Barrie resident Derek Walton and his wife, Diane, were determined to find an original way to raise awareness and funds for ALS research. After thinking outside the box, Jumping 4 "PALS" (People with ALS), an annual skydiving fundraiser event, was born.
Derek, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2002, participated in the inaugural event by completing a tandem jump and raising pledges. The first Jumping 4 "PALS" event raised an incredible $100,000.
Now entering its sixth year, this exceptional event has raised almost $300,000 to date. Sadly, Derek is no longer able to skydive, but he invites you to take part in this unforgettable event this year and help raise funds for ALS Canada to help find a cure for ALS.
