Jump 4 Jaclyn Fundraiser

Jaclyn Murphy was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor when she was just 9 years old. Through chance events Jaclyn was adopted by a collegiate lacrosse team and because of this relationship she vowed to help make a difference in the lives of other children battling pediatric cancers. Jaclyn and her family created the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. They do this by creating lasting relationships between families battling cancer and local sports teams, clubs and community groups. The team provides the child with love, support and friendship as they battle "the beast" and work toward recovery. Jump for Jaclyn was created when James, a first responder, also decided to stand up (and jump) against cancer in hopes of helping more families struggling through a cancer diagnosis. James, an experienced skydiver with over 260 jumps under his belt, approached the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation with the idea to skydive 25 times in one day, with each jump having a direct connection to someone who has been affected by cancer. I was fortunate to be selected to capture this amazing event on the ground and tethered from a two passenger helicopter.
