Alix , this brave soul tells us why she signed up: “I decided to tandem skydive for the MONA foundation because they do amazing work for primates and they need all the help they can get! But I also wanted to challenge myself!

Do you also want to tandem skydive for MONA?

SkyMONA 2015- Flyingmonkeys II Edition

Tags : 

On September 19th, the MONA Foundation will be back in its monkey costume and will once again skydive for a great cause : to give Cheeta a second chance.

Here at Mona we are getting ready to transit Cheeta from her zoo in Fuerteventura to our center, she is the sole survivor of a zoo escape. Unforntunetly, King and Felipa, Cheeta’s family were killed during the escape.

Will you skydive for Cheeta and the MONA Foundation?

This year we are hoping to put together a group of skydivers to make up a valient and dynamic team : the Flyingmonkeys.  You will skydive in tamdem, therefore there is no need to be an experienced skydiver, all you need is courage, a monkey costume and the desire to have a good time. The experts, Skydive Empuriabrava will take care of the rest. This event is a novelty in Spain, however in other countries like England it has been very comun way of raising funds.

A minute long  4 000 meters free fall, which will give you an adrenaline rush, you will feel free as a bird! How does that sound? Fun? Then don’t wait one more second and sign up!

What is new this time around?

This time there will not only be jumps! Even if you’re not looking for an adrenaline rush there will be a lot of activities for you to do right here on the ground! We have organized a full day of activies for all ages!

There will be stands and activities like: Face painting, Fashion MonaWeek, young researchers, storytelling, and exhibition of skydiving dubbers, a visit in one of the planes, live music by the rock group ‘Pelut’, a presentation by famous skydiver Santi Corella (pioneer in the world of skydiving with free fall two world records) of his new book ‘Frontera Límite’, a bar and restaurant service and many more surprises!

It will be a very special day during which fun and solidarity will go hand in hand!

During the last edition, 5 brave flyingmonkeys took the jump and raised more than 5 000 euros that Mona used to purchase new veterinary equipment! This year our goal is to raise part of the 18 000 euros that we need to take Cheeta in, buy her food for one year and heal the bullet wounds she received during the escape.

If you’ve always dreamed of skydiving then look no further! Sign up to make your dream a reality and at the same give back to a worthy cause!
