Despite the nerves, the radio host was motivated to take the sky diving challenge for his daughter, Mackenzie, who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes.
“If our 7-year old daughter, Mackenzie, can have up to 7-needles a day to stay alive -- and never complain -- then jumping out of a plane's no big deal,” said Ben.
