Lauren prepares to skydive for charity

Lauren McDermott, a member of St. Cuthbert’s congregation is preparing to skydive to raise money for a charity that is close to her heart. She’s raising money for Endometriosis South Coast, which has helped her cope with a painful condition.

Lauren now hopes to raise awareness of this painful condition by bravely leaping out of a plane this September. The 24-year-old wants to raise money for the new charity Endometriosis South Coast via a sponsored skydive from 15,000 feet. And she’d love you to sponsor her.

If you would like to sponsor her, visit Lauren’s Skydive below.
