Last year, one of the staff members from Skydive San Marcos lost a dog to cancer and one to a brain tumor. If that wasnt enough, one of the regular licensed skydivers lost his dog to old age.
We wanted to pay tribute to their lives and spoke about an ash dive, when you take a special bag and then release the ashes in free fall, Sarah Bartley with Skydive San Marcos said. This led on to make the jump into an event to raise money and awareness.
