Extra Special People hosted their annual Big Jump fundraiser on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at Skydive Monroe in Monroe, Georgia. Funds from the event will go toward summer programs.
In years past, Big Jump has taken place in May. The global COVID-19 pandemic necessitated rescheduling the jump on two separate occasions.
UGA cheerleaders, Hairy Dawg and local DJs - fixtures over the previous ten years of the fundraiser - were absent due to the pandemic. Many of the people involved in ESP were unable to attend due to underlying health conditions.
Despite the major modifications, ESP saw more jumpers than ever sign up and raised the funds needed to support their programs.
