Skydive Danielson will be hosting our 1st Annual Canopies For Kids event during the July 4th holiday weekend. First time tandem students as well as licensed skydivers jumping during this weekend can purchase bears for donation.

Canopies for kids is an ongoing project with the mission of providing children in hospitals with the support, courage, and hope they need; by enabling skydivers with the opportunity to have their jumps make a difference for kids one canopy at a time. Want to learn more? Check out this video.
