Kevin Burkart ’94, Savage, Minn., promised and executed 100 perfect jumps in one day to raise money for Parkinson disease research in recognition of his father’s ongoing struggle with the disease. The veteran of more than 700 jumps jumped at Skydive Twin Cities in Baldwin, Wis., on June 4. Burkart, president of StepStoneGroup, which offers marketing, design and promotional services, raised more than $40,000. Details and his father’s story at www.perfectjumps.com.
