Operation Freefall 2006: The Two-Mile High Stand Against Sexual Assault

Join RAINN and Speaking Out About Rape (SOAR) for the sixth annual Operation Freefall. On April 29, 2006 thousands of skydivers will take to the air in order to show their support and raise money for the fight against sexual assault. This year’s event, which culminates National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention month, is expected to be the largest ever. Visit www.operationfreefall.com for more information on how you can sign up to become a jumper.

You do not need to be an experienced skydiver to participate in Operation Freefall; in fact, most of the divers are first-timers. Participants will make a “tandem” skydive attached to a licensed tandem master and receive a souvenir video of their jump. For those of you that still don’t want to make the dive, there are still many ways to participate so check out the site to see how you can help the jumpers raise their pledges.

Funds raised from Operation Freefall will help maintain and expand the National Sexual Assault Hotline (operated by RAINN), expand SOAR’s programs to educate lawmakers, police officers, students and the media about sexual assault and extend efforts to provide prevention, recovery, and prosecution information to tens of millions of people.

RAINN would also like to congratulate Operation Freefall's founder, Kellie Green, on her selection as a finalist for the 2006 Diet Rite Zero Boundaries Woman. Show your support of Kellie and of Operation Freefall by casting your vote on www.dietrite.com.
