Sara Simmonds’ Sky Dive for YCP

Ninety-eight-year-old Sara Simmonds became the oldest person to sky dive in the state of Louisiana on May 26, 2017 - and she did it all for the cadets of the Youth Challenge Program. Ms. Simmonds raised money for the Youth Challenge Program prior to her jump by asking her fellow Alexandria Rotary Club members and other locals to donate money to the program. Ms. Simmond's jump was later recognized by several news stations, thus raising a total of over $4000 for the Youth Challenge Program. We thank Ms. Simmonds for her continued support and dedication to our program.
