On August 25th, I will attempt something I never imagined doing - skydiving. The thought of jumping out of an airplane was never attractive to me. I’m not exactly an “extreme sports” type of guy, and, oh yeah, I’m deathly afraid of heights.

I won’t be alone in my journey to conquer the sky as 24 other jumpers will join me for “Wish Jump 2012”. Make-A-Wish of Northeast New York are the presenters of this event that will benefit their efforts to make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

When you put things in perspective – my fear of heights pales in comparison to the pain and suffering these children are faced with each day.

The organization obviously needs funding to support their efforts so I’m asking that you donate some of your hard earned money that will go to a great cause. No donation is too little!

Some of these children will take trips, some will meet some of their favorite celebrities, etc. If there’s one thing that’s been a highlight from my job in radio, it’s the smile and excitement on a child’s face when they meet one of their favorite celebrities. Think about it - your donation will help these ill children smile, in some cases, one last time.
