COMMUNITY: 15,000ft Sky Dive in memory of Teri McKendry

14 July 2023

On Thursday 17th August 2023, Owen McKendry and friend Lennon Holtom will be travelling to Peterborough to undertake a 15,000ft Sky Dive in memory of Owen’s sister – Teri McKendry.

As an added incentive, they’ll not only be leaping from the skies, having that total freedom as they exit the plane and the thrill and adrenaline of simply falling through the air. They're also planning to run 1km for every £10.00 that gets donated! 

Jon McKendry (Teri and Owen’s father) has worked for our charity Sky Blues in the Community for the last 15 months. Jon is a Football Development Coordinator for SBitC alongside working for CCFC’s Academy as an Academy Scout. Jon has been a scout for the last 10 years now with CCFC and the past 5 years being the lead regional scout in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Son, Owen McKendry, and his friend Lennon Holtom will be taking on the Sky Dive and Run this summer in memory of their beloved daughter and sister Teri, who would have been 30 years old in August this year. They plan to donate all monies raised to the charity MIND (charity number 219830).

Jon commented, “This event is a cause that is very close to my family's heart, as in March 2021 our daughter Teri McKendry lost her life. Teri would have been 30 years old in August this year, so my son felt it was the best time to celebrate her birthday and memory to all who knew her.

Jon continued to say, “Teri passing away was a catastrophic blow to our family and friends. Teri left behind her son who we now raise.”

From everyone at Sky Blues in the Community and Coventry City Football Club, we wish Owen and Lennon the best of luck!
