WGNA listener Gary Dibble is asking for your help to help make a child’s wish come true with WishJump 2014!

On Saturday, July 26, the local spin instructor and Ironman finisher will join others to skydive for a great cause. You can read below to help the cause and/or join a benefit Spin-A-Thon at Poise studio in Slingerlands on Sunday, June 29.

Q: What is WishJump2014?

A: Wish Jump 2014 is the fourth annual skydiving fundraiser for Make-A-Wish® Northeast New York, over the past 3 year raising nearly $70,000.00. This year our goal is to raise over $35,000.00. Having already raised over $10,000.00, we are on our way to meeting or exceeding that goal.

Q: When and Where is WishJump2014?

A: The event is scheduled for July 26th at Saratoga Skydiving Adventures.

Q: Why did you decide to get involved?

A: I got involved after watching a friend of mine jump in 2013. I thought she was crazy jumping out of a plane. But I also respected her for facing her own fear and raising money for a great cause and I can cross something off my bucket list and help grant a local child a wish.

Q: How are people making a difference by supporting WishJump2014?

A: By supporting WishJump people are helping grant a child’s wish. Wish children and teens who live with life-threatening medical conditions face tremendous fears each and every day. WishJumpers, like myself feel that we can face one of our fears at least for 1 day. Money raised by this event is used by our local chapter and stays right here in the 518 area code.

Q: How can people get involved?

A: There are still a few spots available, if you want to participate in WishJump2014 you can send an email to Also, people can get involved by sponsoring a Wishjumper, like myself. They can become an Honorary Wishjumper with a donation of $150.00 their name would be listed on the website.

Q: How are you fundraising and what is your goal?

A: My goal is to raise at least $1500.00, I am really hoping to surpass that. Right now I have been asking my friends and family if they would like to support my crazy idea of jumping out of plane. Since I am a local spin instructor, I thought that I would organize a Spin-A-Thon to help raise some money. So, along with Poise Studio, I am planning the ride on June 29th, at 9:30 am.The ride will be 90 minutes long, with a suggested donation of $10.00. Anyone can sign up for the ride by clicking the above link. Poise Studio is located in Slingerlands.
