Dear JFTR Supporter,


The Board of Directors is pleased to write this letter of appreciation to each and every volunteer, participant, and donor who supported Jump For The Rose throughout 2011. Building on the success of our inaugural year, we were able to provide camps at various skydiving facilities throughout the great state of Texas where young jumpers were able to learn about and improve their skills in formation skydiving.   This wonderful charity is able to, not only increase awareness and raise money in support of the excellent services The Rose provides to women, but also motivate and teach others how to give back to those who are less fortunate through skydiving.  What a wonderful way to live up to our motto:

“Skydive~Have Fun~and Give Back”!

"Besides being a fabulous fundraiser, this support means an awful lot of mammograms for an awful lot of women," said Dorothy Gibbons, CEO and co-founder of  The Rose. The organization is dedicated to providing screening, diagnostics, treatment, and support to all women regardless of their ability to pay for services. For example, women with health insurance who undergo mammograms at The Rose enable doctors to provide the same service for another woman who cannot pay. Since early diagnosis and treatment are key to treatment success, insured women who are screened and treated at The Rose are literal lifesavers.


We hope that communities throughout the state will continue to embrace Jump For The Rose’s mission and continue to help raise awareness for breast healthcare and funds for women to seek the services and treatment they need at The Rose.  JFTR is thrilled with the opportunity to reach an even greater audience next year and to raise critical funding for the Rose’s Empower Her Sponsorship Program. 


We send out a heartfelt Thank You to each and every one of you who donated your time and money to Jump For The Rose.  Stay in touch with us as we ramp up for an even more successful year of: “Skydiving~Having Fun~ and Giving Back” in 2012!



JFTR Board of Directors

October 8th & 9th 2011

Come Jump For The Rose with us at Skydive Spaceland! Not only are we setting skydiving records (JFTR ladies hold the National Record for Sequential Skydiving and the Women's Texas State Record), we are raising money for a great cause and having a great time doing it!

This is a fundraiser to support The Rose, a facility that helps those that don't have health insurance with mammograms and breast cancer treatments. They helped a fellow skydiver (actually, saved her life) and now it's time to give back (see Marian Spark's tell her story on Great Day Houston, September 19th). Your registration fee is a donation to The Rose and with your total collection of only $250, you are helping to save multiple lives! You may donate to Jump For The Rose (a 501c3 Charity) at our website through Paypal.

Jumping starts first thing Saturday morning with The Women's Texas State Record, along with organized Bigways for the Men. Raffle tickets for cool skydive gear and other fun stuff will be for sale throughout the weekend and the Anvil Brothers will be cooking and providing live music Saturday night.
