Joseph Harrison, export sales executive at EthOss Regeneration Ltd, is set to take on a daring skydive this month in aid of a charity close to his heart.
Joseph, who has worked at EthOss since 2018, will be skydiving from a height of 15,000 feet, in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Both of Joseph’s parents have overcome cancer in the last 18 months, inspiring the 30-year-old to take on the challenge and raise vital funds for the charity which helps fund life-saving cancer research.
Joseph, who suffers from an extreme fear of heights, said: “Following both my parents getting and overcoming cancer in the last 18 months, I thought it was about time I did my part in the fight to beat cancer and, with a fear of heights, what better way than to throw myself out of a plane for charity!
“It’s going to be a challenge, facing my fear and jumping, but it’s such an important cause that has really affected my family in recent years – it will be worth it!”
EthOss is supporting Joseph by funding the cost of the skydive, which will take place at Black Knights Parachute Centre on Friday 30th October.
Dr Paul Harrison, managing director at EthOss, said: “We’re very proud of Joseph, undertaking this huge fundraising challenge and facing his fear in aid of such a vital cause.
“We look forward to watching the video of his skydive when he’s back from his jump and hope his fundraising appeal makes a real difference to the crucial work of Cancer Research UK.”
