Earlier this week, 181 women jumped from nine planes to set the word record for most women jumping in skydiving formation. The jumpers, from more than 26 different countries, came together to raise money for breast cancer research, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They included breast cancer survivors, their families, and friends. In total, the jump raised almost $1 million.
While I really admire these women for jumping for an important cause (and setting a world record to boot!), I don't know if I could bring myself to jump out of a plane. Are you a scaredy cat like me, or do you like the rush that comes with taking risks?
