We had an awesome fairy themed day this week! Those who had raised the $600 target to raise money for 4 year old Aucklander Ella, were treated to a 13,000ft skydive. Ella was here too and watched as fairies actually came down from the sky. Brilliant day and well done to everyone who took part. We are extending this fundraising cause until the end of March 2018 - so sign up NOW!

Ella was born at 25 weeks weighing 800 grams and was given a slim chance of ever leaving hospital.She has life long conditions: Cerebral Palsy, Hydrocephalus and Epilepsy. Ella has been selected to undergo Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) at St Louis Children's Hospital in America.

Her surgeons believe that Ella will be able to walk with crutches and possibly even independently, giving her a whole new quality of life. This operation is not available to Ella in NZ and due to restrictions in NZ to get support with overseas medical care, Ella needs over $150,000NZD to be raised.

Ella loves fairies and fairies come from the sky. Sign up to 'Skydiving Fairies' to raise money for Ella. Every Skydive Auckland fundraiser page, that raises $600 for Ella will receive a free tandem 13,000ft skydive. fine out more information or sign up to Skydive For Ella
