F.A.S.T. – Fifty And Still Trackin’ is taking Falls for The Balls and skydiving to support the Testicular Cancer Society
In December, 50 skydivers, all over the age of 50, gathered in Zephyrhills, Florida at the Skydive City Drop Zone to make a difference by taking some Falls for The Balls. They built a incredible 50-person formation during their freefall and raised over $4800 in support of the Testicular Cancer Society.
F.A.S.T. or Fifty And Still Tracking is an organization for skydivers over 50 years of age who still love the sport and skydive their butts off!!! Who love formations, sequential, and all new innovations of the sport. Check out their Facebook Page at FAST 50 Fifty And Still Trackin‘
After their awesome formation they held a dinner and auctioned off the first 50 membership numbers. Their enthusiasm and generosity raised over $4800 for the Testicular Cancer Society and that is just the beginning. They are continuing to support the TCS by adding new members and with t-shirt and patch sales.
You can become a F.A.S.T. member if you were 50 years of age at the time of being in a 10-way or larger formation. By going to the F.A.S.T. Facebook page qualified jumpers can email a photo with their slot marked, date of birth and date of photo to become a member. As membership in the FAST Organization is for charity they request that a check for $10 (or more if so inclined) made out to the “Testicular Cancer Society” also be included in order to gain membership. Also, see their page for the t-shirts and patches.
We would like to congratulate the original organizers of the F.A.S.T. 50-way on an awesome accomplishment and also thank them for the largest single-day donation in TCS history. They have shown that no matter what it is that you love to do you can do it and make a huge difference at the same time. Thank you so much for your generosity, support and enthusiasm. We look forward to many more Falls for The Balls!!!
