Fall for Hounds



This fundraising opportunity of a lifetime was coordinated by Julie Collier with all the proceeds going to the RGT.  Everyone who participated jumped from a light aircraft 13,000 feet high - that's 2 miles and a 50 second free fall! 

Even if you are not taking part in the jump you can still join in the fun and help raise money for greyhounds.  You can either sponsor one of the brave participants or even join us for the fundraising party after the jump for some great food, music and auction prizes. See the event details below for timings and locations.
