#10TEN10 dads free fall in memory of lost babies

Sunday 27 September 2020 saw the #10TEN10 men undertake their biggest challenge to date; a skydive from 13,000 feet.  The men have had their #10TEN10 campaign severely disrupted in 2020 by the COVID-19 Pandemic.  The skydive was originally set to be completed in July and the men should now be coming to and end with their campaign, however due to the national restrictions the skydive was postponed in July along with a number of other events.  This meant that the skydive was only their third event of ten.  The bravery shown by all was amazing their babies will be extremely proud of them all. Well done men!!
