Ben Fordham joins JDRF’s JUMP Challenge

February 02, 2023


Ben Fordham is jumping out of a plane to raise money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Will you support him – or even join him?

Talking on 2GB’s Breakfast Show on Thursday, February 2, 2023, the popular radio host revealed that he has signed up for JUMP, JDRF’s tandem skydiving event to help raise funds for lifesaving T1D research.

Ben is a long-term supporter of JDRF and may be familiar to some members of our community as a former MC of previous JDRF One Walk events.

And now he’s committed to joining our Jumpers at Wollongong on March 19!

Ben discussed his decision – and how he came to agree to take part – during a chat with JDRF Australia’s CEO, Mike Wilson. Listen to what they had to say on the video above.

Support Ben by making a donation on his fundraising page.

Or if you’d like to join Ben and take part in the Jump challenge yourself, sign up today!
