WASHINGTON (7News) — As a retired U.S. Navy SEAL, Mike Sarraille has seen a lot and done more.
Now, as the co-creator of the group Legacy Expeditions, he is planning on shattering a world record. Sarraille, along with some of his friends, are going to skydive on all seven continents in just seven days. In the process, they are hoping to raise $7 million that they are planning on donating to Folds of Honor.
Folds of Honor is a group that offers scholarships to those kids that lost a parent or had one disabled from war. For each jump, Sarraille is hoping that others will remember the sacrifices of those that gave their all to protect our freedoms.
“I'm jumping in honor of Michael Monsoor who was a Navy SEAL that was killed on Sept. 29, 2006, in the battle of Ramadi. He jumped on a grenade three feet from two other SEALs and save their lives for which he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. I just happened to be the SEAL that was three feet to his right that he saved.”

Sarraille said his first jump will be in Antarctica and then it’s just a matter of dealing with little sleep and lots of travel to pull off the other six jumps.
