VIDEO: Carly Booth skydives over Dubai to raise money for her brother


Carly Booth is a great golfer and a better sister. The Scottish-born pro wanted to raise money to support her 24-year-old brother, Paul, who qualified for next year's Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles in powerlifting. Paul, who has Down Syndrome, won four medals in the European Special Olympics.

How'd the Ladies European Tour pro choose to raise the money? Drawing pledges to skydive over Dubai when in town for the LET's season-ending Dubai Ladies Masters. Booth posted the video from the December 15 jump to Facebook, and it looks like a lot of fun.

The campaign worked, as Booth raised nearly double her initial goal of £1,000. However, you can still donate!
