Project: Skydive to Save Lives! ...3-miles & 125mph! Fighting against Meningitis, which kills or disables 1.7 million children & adults each year.
Mission: Meningitis demands urgent detection & treatment. Therefore, my mission is to fund research & raise awareness of meningitis among the public, in order to prevent death & disability.
Vision: To heal & rebuild the lives of families and individuals affected by meningitis.
How YOU can help: Meningitis is a deadly disease which can affect anyone, anywhere, and at any time! Despite the success of some meningitis vaccines, the UK still sees around 3,300 cases of life-threatening bacterial meningitis and septicaemia every year, with some children & adults dying in less than four hours.
Those of us who survive, may still be left with devastating life-changing injuries, including: brain damage, loss of limbs, blindness, and deafness. Donations will go towards the leading UK meningitis charities, in order to help fund the research to prevent meningitis, and improve survival rates/outcomes. With the right education and vaccination, YOU can help to control & eliminate this deadly disease.
For your generosity, donations within certain thresholds will be rewarded.

I wish to help families & individuals to fight against this fatal disease. So, I have joined the Confederation of Meningitis Organisations (CoMO), and I'm kindly asking for donations leading towards Sunday 23rd July 2017 - whereby in the home of Stonehenge (Salisbury, UK), I will be falling 3-miles, at a speed of 125mph, in my Skydive to Save Lives! Video footage with the skydiving specialists (GoSkyDive) will be featured on my website.
In the aftermath of my traumatic battle with meningitis, I have been actively contributing to UK Parliament, universities, charity, and more (see www.RSTumber.com). My contributions have been published in: The Times, The Huffington Post, SC Magazine, ISSA Journal, and others. As well as being a member of CoMO, I'm associated with the following entities:
