INFO

 

On April 2nd we celebrate World Autism Awareness Day. As a way to manifest, the American association Autism Speaks created in 2010 the Light It Up Blue movement, a global initiative that aims to sensitize the world population for this great cause. The campaign consists in involving the community, illuminating many iconic landmarks in blue, as has happened in Portugal with Cristo Rei, or the Empire State Building and the White House in the United States, among many others around the world.

At Skydive Europe, we could not remain indifferent, and continuing what has been done in previous years, we planned a big event to integrate and alert the public to this initiative, inviting everyone to make this day even bluer!

The idea to transmit is that any person, entity or place can contribute to this understanding, in Skydive Europe’s case, with skydiving. So, on this day, several actions will be taken, including the sale of allusive t-shirts, whose results will be drawn to support autism related associations that will be present. A small price for a great cause!

In the morning you will be welcomed in the Chill Zone by the fantastic Red Bull’s Wings Team. Throughout the day, we will be counting with great names such as
Nelson Évora, who will break another record by jumping in freefall; the ever so nice Sílvia Rizzo that will bring her energy to give wings to this day and many other faces, familiar to everyone! Several air activity organizations have also joined Skydive Europe: we will have an Acrobatic Show, with many radical maneuvers performed by the emblematic Luís Garção, a Publibalão’s hot air balloon to entertain the attendants and, of course, skydiving exhibitions, with Mário Pardo’s big ideas! Voar Sem Medo will also embrace this cause, supporting the various lines of this initiative.

We want the day to be dedicated to these children, who undoubtedly deserve all our support! We have prepared many surprises to brighten the day, so join us to illuminate this message and help take it as high and far as possible!
