Remembering Kyle via skydive

Friends and family of the late Kyle Clifford gathered at South Grafton airport last year for his memorial.
Friends and family of the late Kyle Clifford gathered at South Grafton airport last year for his memorial.

FROM SUNRISE to sunset today, some people will be jumping out of a plane and generally living life to the max to celebrate the life of Kyle Clifford.

Kyle and his mate Nathan Chapman were killed in a car crash in Grafton in April 2010 and each year Kyle's mum Jodie and those close to him honour his memory with a memorial skydive over South Grafton.

Ms Clifford said each year the day had a different theme.

"This year it's 'let your hopes, not your hurts shape your future'. It's for the young people, it's about letting your hurts go, start re-living, re-dreaming and get on with your future," Ms Clifford said.

There are all sorts of fun things happening at the South Grafton Aerodrome, not just skydiving.

For those who prefer terra firma, there are jumping castles, sumo-wrestling (with sumo suits), food and live entertainment.

"The day is all about family so we're welcoming everyone," she said.

The day begins with a memorial service at 6am.
