In 1920 women in the US were guaranteed the right to vote following the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. Countless women risked everything to encourage and influence the women’s suffrage movement. Through the sport of skydiving our community will celebrate and honor these courageous women by bravely showing the world what we do. Welcome to #Project19!
In 2020 the Women's Skydiving Network will fully sponsor attempts to build a 100-way Women’s Vertical World Record. The WSN will cover the costs of participant registration, record jumps, and support team jumps. This is the first time in history that a 100-way world record attempt will be fully sponsored. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all who attend!
The vertical world record attempts will take place July 4-11, 2020 at Skydive Chicago in Ottawa, IL. Captains of the World Record Team are Sara Curtis and Amy Chmelecki. More info about this project can be found here.
