Super fan Tracey Steele will make an amazing skydive from above the world’s highest peak in support of the Homeless World Cup.
American thrill-seeker Tracey will soar into the Himalayan skies above Mount Everest at 29,500 feet, one of the highest pinnacle altitudes that Skydivers have ever propelled themselves from, before taking the leap of faith.
Through the event, to take place in next year, Tracey aims to spread awareness for the Homeless World Cup and to set-up a homeless football team in her native Chicago.
The Everest Skydive will be the latest in a series of incredible feats achieved by Tracey who has done everything from bungee-jumping to hang gliding all to support charities.
Tracey said: “The Homeless World Cup promotes an unending cycle of greatness and self-discovery. Even as a soccer novice I have witnessed the surge of joy from the players, fans and volunteers that this organisation provides. It’s great to play a part.”
