A group of thrill-seeking CEOs have taken to the skies of the Illawarra and raised more than $185,000 for research that helps support mental health and suicide prevention.
On Friday, Skydive Australia hosted more than a dozen of Australia's top business leaders, who participated in the inaugural 'CEO Skydive for Mental Health.'
The CEOs were from organisations spanning from the Black Dog Institute to the Sydney Swans.
This initiative was raising funds for the Black Dog Institute and their research.
Participants landed at Stuart Park, North Wollongong.
Among the participants was John O'Sullivan, Experience Co CEO (owners of Skydive Australia).
"It was fantastic - an awesome experience, and beautiful weather conditions," Mr O'Sullivan said, minutes after completing his jump.
"It was a great day, and a great cause as well.
"There were a lot of people today who overcame their own fear and apprehension about jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft at 15,000 feet."
Duncan Gibb from Fulton Hogan also took part.
"It's mind-blowing when you first hop out and freefall for a while," Mr Gibb said.
"I had a jump 26 years ago, but that seems like a lifetime ago now."
