Alejandro would have loved the chance to jump out of a plane at least one more time. Thanks to a friend of his who was familiar with Ranger Road, he got that opportunity when he attended his first skydiving event hosted by the non-profit in 2015. He’s been a part of the Ranger Road family ever since! A self-described ambassador for RR and Program Manager of the Skydiving program and events, Alejandro is on a mission to widen the community of military amputees while also working to bring in potential donors. He, too, once missed the feeling of brotherhood that is so strongly felt in the military, and as he continues to find that in RR he feels compelled to bring that feeling back for others too. He says there is no better feeling than to see a vet who thinks their life is over because of an injury and then getting them to go skydiving, complete a Spartan Race, or get into a racecar and seeing the spark re-ignite in their life.

Skydiving is not only a complete stress reliever, but there are many other health benefits as well. Other health benefits in skydiving include building your physical strength in your arms and your core, conquering fears and challenging your mental doubts which can help with overcoming obstacles in life later on, it helps build up your self confidence and it also produces a huge amount of adrenaline which boosts your survival instincts up through the roof!
Let's face it, we all have stress. Stress can cause a lot of wear and tear on your body and mind. Skydiving is one of the many things that can completely release you from the stresses of your every day life. A large amount of chemicals are released in your brain after you skydive that help create feelings of happiness and euphoria. Skydiving also forces you to live in the moment. This means that when you exit the airplane any previous thoughts will be gone and you will simply be existing. Existing and living in the moment is what keeps skydivers coming back for more and more.
