Blog Post: Skydive Suffolk Featured on ODU Website for CWC Partnership

November 1, 2017

We’re proud to play a role in Jumping for a Purpose, the annual event hosted by Combat Wounded Coalition (CWC) at our facility. The day gives wounded veterans a chance to go skydiving and perhaps overcome emotional or psychological obstacles in their own lives.

This year, Old Dominion University’s psychology department attended Jumping for a Purpose to study the wounded veterans who participated and help them transition back to the civilian world.

Check out the article from on the ODU website about the day!
