Our Mission

We want to give cancer patients and survivors an extraordinary experience that brings them courage and confidence … so we take them skydiving. Fear and uncertainty are very common with cancer patients and survivors, and skydiving helps people face their fears, and become empowered. 

2 Miles of Smiles is a grassroots 501 (c)3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization established in May, 2019 that will help cancer patients and survivors feel a sense of strength and empowerment rather than feeling vulnerable and helpless. This empowerment can be achieved through skydiving.

"Your dreams are what define your individuality. They have the power to give you wings and fly high."  

-P.V. Sindhu 

Our Mission Statement

Empowering cancer patients and survivors to find strength through skydiving, providing courage to live life fearlessly before, during, or after treatment.

 

Why Skydive?

Because it is one of the most empowering things you can do to overcome a fear. Once you’ve jumped out of an airplane, you’ll realize how strong you are which will help you deal with anxieties about your future.

Our mission is to provide the funds to take cancer patients and survivors, along with a companion, on a tandem skydive at Skydive Spaceland in Dallas.  By overcoming the fear of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,500 feet in the air, they will gain strength to face another fear; surviving cancer with its uncertainties.

So, why not reclaim your life 2 miles in the sky and go skydiving with us!
