SUFFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- A local woman who has ALS headed for the skies, checking off an item on her bucket list while fighting helping others fight the debilitating disease.

Beth Prever went skydiving Sunday.

"Skydive Suffolk" agreed to donate 20 dollars to "Beth's Brigade" for every person who jumped with Prever.

The brigade consists of family members and friends who are raising money for the upcoming "J-T Walk" in Virginia Beach in October. The event also raises money to help stop ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease).

Photojournalist Nehemiah Bell was there as Prever made her jump.
