Ryan takes on sponsored weight loss and skydive for YBTC

Ryan takes on sponsored weight loss and skydive for YBTC


Wed 09 June

Our supporter Ryan Massey has embarked on the epic challenge of losing three stone and doing a skydive, all raising funds for YBTC.
The sponsored weight loss will hopefully enable Ryan to join in with our Yorkshire Day Skydive on Sunday 1st August at Bridlington Airfield. The skydive will see him jump from an aircraft flying 10,000 feet in the air and free falling at over 120mph!

Ryan needs to raise £400 in order to take part, and is asking for donations on his GoFundMe page.

Ryan said: “I am doing a sponsored weight loss for my partner Sharlin's brother James.

“After years of attempting to track down his family, my brother-in-law James learnt he had several sisters and a brother. This was amazing news to round up 2020, considering that towards the end of the year, James was diagnosed with a Glioma, a form of brain tumour. This devastated the whole family and it scared everyone that we could lose him so quickly.
 
“On 15th January 2021, James had an operation which removed more than 95% of the tumour. The reason your donations are so important is to fund research in case James’ brain tumour reoccurs and for anyone else that may be going through the same.”
 
Jen Aspinall, our Community Fundraiser, said: “Ryan has been so brave, firstly by putting himself forward to lose 3 stone, which is a challenge in itself, but secondly with the aim of jumping out of a plane to raise vital funds needed to support families like his. We are asking you to support him, so he can hit the £400 target needed to take part in the skydive, as it’s something Ryan said that he would not want to miss out on.”
