Now, it had to take someone or something pretty special to make me do something as crazy as skydiving, and that something special was Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish is an organization that is very dear to my heart, as my cousin Jake, received an Alaskan fishing trip wish after he was diagnosed with cancer when he was in high school. Jake said that receiving his wish was something that meant so much to him and was the best thing that he did during his battle with cancer. Because of Jake, I started volunteering and granting wishes for Make-A-Wish four years ago. I "Jumped for Wishes" in memory of Jake and in honor of all the Wish kids I've had the honor of granting wishes to.

Our motto was "Putting our lives at risk, for those whose lives are at risk"
