WNYSkydiving is a full service skydiving training center conveniently located in Akron, NY, between Darien Lakes and Clarence, NY. WNYSkydiving is within easy driving distance of Buffalo, NY and Rochester, NY and is open year round, weather permitting. If the sky is clear, they can fly! Presently, bears that have jumped at WNYSkydiving will benefit Carly’s Club at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute or Golisano Children’s Hospital.
WNYSkydiving understands that throwing yourself out of an airplane isn’t for everyone. For those that would like to make a donation and make a difference in the life of a child, the Sponsor a Bear option is just what you’re looking for!
When you choose to sponsor a bear, you are simply purchasing one of the Canopies for Kids kits to be shipped to WNYSkydiving. There, those bears will be paired up with another skydiver to take along on their jump. The bear will then be donated to the partnering hospital to offer comfort to a sick child.
By sponsoring a bear, you agree that the kit you purchase will be donated. This kit will not be available for you to take on your jump should you choose to make a skydive yourself at a later date.
If you would like to make the jump personally before donating your Canopies for Kids bear, you can book your reservation directly at www.wnyskydiving.com You will then be directed to a separate order form designed to add jump kits to existing reservations.
