TWIN CITIES, Minn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--What does an 80-year old woman who’s falling out of the sky look like?! 101 women over 50 (including several 80-year-olds), who want to overcome their fears and ignite their inner strength, are going to skydive over Baldwin, Wisconsin, on August 28, 2010, to raise funds for abused women, bring awareness about AGING BUT DANGEROUS.com™ ABD —(www.agingbutdangerous.com)— and set a world record for the number of 50+ women parachuting during a single event —-The Martini Jump Skydive. There will be food, live music, more than 15 unique vendors, Martinis and other libations for friends and families of Skydivers, plus the public ($10.00 adults, $5.00 kids 12 and under).
“What makes this event special is that members of the AGING BUT DANGEROUS™ community are jumping with me. Women can do ANYTHING they put their minds to—especially at this age—including jumping out of an airplane!”
Proceeds will benefit CornerSTONE, an agency advocating for abused women (www.cornerstonemn.org). The event runs from 8:45 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Skydive Twin Cities in Baldwin, Wisconsin — just 30 minutes from the Twin Cities. DIRECTIONS/Map: http://www.skydivetwincities.com/directio.htm
“When I decided to skydive, (for the second time), to celebrate a major birthday, (70 this time), my ABD cofounder, C. Suzanne Bates, and I had no idea that so many other women would want to join me,” says ABD’s Jean Ketcham. “What makes this event special is that members of the AGING BUT DANGEROUS™ community are jumping with me. Women can do ANYTHING they put their minds to—especially at this age—including jumping out of an airplane!”
For the past year-and-a-half since launching the ABD online and offline community, this zany organization with followers worldwide, has provided tools, a website, a blog, and special events, etc., to help women expand their boundaries. Overcoming their fears to pursue new or life-long goals brings tremendous joy and strength — and benefits women financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
“We are changing the way the world perceives women over 50, by changing the way we perceive ourselves,” notes Bates. “We’ll prove that again when women over 50 will stretch their existing limits and take the plunge to self-pride and self-appreciation at the first-ever Martini Jump.”
