Empuriabrava Hosts Sky Family Fund Event

Five Minute Call | January 2019
Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Skydive Empuriabrava in Spain hosted a fundraising event for the Sky Family Fund, which raises money for victims of skydiving and BASE accidents, on November 16. The Sky Family Fund is part of the Care-All Foundation, whose mission is to give people the possibilities for better lives. Founded in early 2018, Care-All has already provided educational and business funding for recipients in Nepal, Kenya and Zambia, helped support an orphanage in Kenya and—through the Sky Family Fund—assisted two people injured in air-sports accidents.

A group of 20 world-class skydivers participated in the event held at the drop zone and the Windoor Realfly wind tunnel. The foundation also funded tunnel time (with instructors dressed as Spiderman and Power Rangers) for 14 children from the Centre Obert de Santa Eugènia Infantil, which assists children in need. Close to 100 people gathered to watch the prize drawing that took place inside the flight chamber. 

The event—the Care-All Foundation’s first fundraiser—raised €12,000 (about $13,645) for the Sky Family Fund and generated awareness of the foundation’s mission. More information about the foundation and the causes it supports is available at careallfoundation.org.
