SILOAM SPRINGS -- Some Northwest Arkansans are taking great leaps to help victims of child abuse. August 9 and 10th, Skydive Skyranch in Siloam Springs and the Children's Advocacy Center of Benton County are hosting their 5th annual "Sky Dive for Kids" event.
Each jumper is challenged to raise $1,000 for the Children's Advocacy Center.
Natalie Tibbs, with the Children's Advocacy Center said "It's something that's on your bucket, or on a lot of peoples bucket lists to say that they want to skydive, um but then to skydive and it be for a purpose to raise awareness of abuse, what better thing?"
The public is invited bring out their lawn chairs and watch as the sky divers make their way to the ground, beginning at 9 a.m. Lunch will be available for $5, and the last jumper should be safely on the ground by 2 p.m.
