Vegas Indoor Skydiving raises more than $3,000 for NSPCA at 2018 Tunnel Jam

Vegas Indoor Skydiving raised more than $3,000 for the NSPCA, as it celebrated its third annual Tunnel Jam Flight Competition and inaugural Tunnel Jam Celebrity Challenge. The one-of-a-kind competition, which featured two divisions and 15 of the country’s best bodyflyers, also raised hundreds of dollars’ worth of much-needed pet items, including dog food, blankets and dog toys.


Held Friday, Oct. 19, the renowned tunnel competition was kicked off by the inaugural Tunnel Jam Celebrity Challenge, featuring comedian Carrot Top, Vegas Golden Knights in-arena announcer Mark Shunock, BMX pro Ricardo Laguna and Five Finger Death Punch bassist, and former Vegas Indoor Skydiving instructor, Chris Kael. The celebrities attempted to throw a ball through a custom-made hoop, which was suspended in Vegas Indoor Skydiving’s 22-foot-tall wind tunnel, with the wind running at full speed. For every ball that went through the hoop, Vegas Indoor Skydiving and Love Hikes donated $100 to the NSPCA.
