Santa Jumps – Sunday 9th December

Santa Jumps are a fun and special way to experience this exhilarating challenge while supporting our cause at the same time. This is the first event of its kind for Nexus and we want you to be part of our brave team of jumpers!

You will exit the aircraft at 10,000feet, attached to the instructor and experience an unforgettable rush of adrenaline as you free-fall to 6,000 feet where your instructor opens the canopy, guides you through the clouds and steers you both to the ground.

There is a £45 registration fee and then participants must commit to raise a minimum sponsorship of £380 prior to the event. This covers the cost of your jump, your Santa suit and provides a donation to our charity which will pay for 2 specialist counselling sessions for someone who needs our support.

Please note: there is a maximum weight limit for men of 15 stone (95Kg) and for women of 13 stone (83Kg). You must be aged 16 – 80 years to participate.  Participants are responsible for paying their £40 insurance fee on the day.

If this event doesn’t suit, you can book an individual jump on a date that suits you best! Skydives take place throughout the year at The Moonjumper Sky Centre, Garvagh, which is an affiliated British Parachute Association centre with all instructors BPA registered.


Local & international sporting events / challenges

Whether you take part for fun and well-being, to experience a new challenge or perhaps as an excuse to travel, there are lots of local and international sporting events that you can get involved in to support the work of Nexus.   The following are just some ideas so please get in touch if you are taking part in another event and would like fundraising support.  We can also secure places on other overseas marathons and charity challenges so please get in touch to discuss your ideas further. 

Dublin Marathon – Sunday 28th October

This event has now sold out! Are you one of the 20,000 people taking part?  If so, we’d love you to use your feet to make noise for Nexus and raise whatever you can in sponsorship to support our work.  Get in touch for your fundraising pack and charity t-shirt.
