Skydives and abseils
Why take the plunge for Target Ovarian Cancer?
Could you jump 10,000ft from a plane with the noise of the engines in your ears and only the outline of fields visible below? Or dangle from a wire 400ft above the city streets? Skydives and abseils are some of the most unforgettable and adrenaline-filled ways to raise money to support the thousands of women with ovarian cancer in the UK.
Awareness of ovarian cancer is low, both among women and GPs, with two thirds of women diagnosed once the cancer has already spread. Enough is enough. It’s time to TAKE OVAR. Take on a skydive or abseil today to make sure women are diagnosed at the earliest possible stage. Wherever you are in the UK, there are experiences out there for you:
