Do you fancy raising funds for NKH Research and ticking off that bucket list item? Fancy throwing yourself from a plane for the thrills, while also helping make life changing research a reality for NKH kids?

Want to skydive, for free?

Sign up with the Mikaere Foundation, raise the minimum fundraising amount (£395 – £450) and we’ll cover the cost of your jump! You can skydive at anytime that suits you, at any of the 20 airfields across the UK.

If you fancy jumping with company, we do semi regular events. Can’t make it? No problem. Pick any day that suits you, at any of the 20 airfields across the UK.

Will you join us? All of the profits go to NKH Research happening at UCL, specifically for gene therapy for NKH. We’re determined to make a change for our kiddos - it’s hard knowing that the seizures, the dystonia, the pain, all of it - doesn’t need to happen. That their wee lives could be DIFFERENT. That they could live, and have futures (!) and all of this is possible with gene therapy!

The only thing getting in the way is funding, so please. Skydiving feels like such a roundabout way to make it happen, but the more skydivers we get, the closer we get to an effective gene therapy treatment.

Please sign up - please join us! Find out more at
