Paul Dyer – better known as “Buck” by friends at the Drop Zone is a 40-year resident of the Bangor area, a father, a husband, a local business owner, and a skydiver.
Why skydiving? I have an adventurous personality and I took my first jump at the age of 30. One jump turned in two and over time two jumps turned into over 2000 jumps. I'm also a huge fan of the men and women of The Shrine and the work they do through the Shrine Hospital.
The Shrine first touched me at a young age when my niece, Maya, had a medical condition that caused her to need several de-rotation surgeries as she grew up. You can imagine the expense of multiple surgeries throughout someone's growing years. Many times, those happened at The Shrine Hospital and at no cost to my family. I don't know what we would have done otherwise. Also, over the years I've worked with the Shrine business owners in my professional career. I find them to be generous, courageous, yes, fun-loving, but a serious group of men and women doing serious work for children all around the United States; So, I’m a huge supporter. Now I'm putting my two passions together this summer, and I'm hoping you'll help me help them reach my goal of raising $20,000.
I'm 55 years old, so I'm training, dieting, running, and getting ready for this marathon of physical and mental strength, but I know I can do it because my passion for The Shrine will carry the a great deal of the load.
Please donate what you can to help The Shrine.
$1 a jump, $5 a jump, $10 a jump. I'll put out my best efforts to make sky diving history in Maine and raise money for one of the best causes there is…
You can make a one-time donation via paypal or pledge per jump to be charged to your credit card upon completion of this event.
We need Business Sponsors too and Business Pledgers to make this successful.
Skydiving is constantly in the media - and increasingly - in a great deal of national television advertising and social media in addition to print.
There are a lot of clean white spaces *possible to place your logo that could be around for years and years!
