Will Smith’s Grand Jump

To celebrate his 50th birthday this Tuesday, September 25, superstar Will Smith plans to bungee-jump out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon. You can stream the action live on his YouTube channel.

The time of the jump hasn’t been announced yet. And, according to AZ Central, the exact location isn’t clear either.

But, according to Smith, it’s going to happen because he aims to conquer the “paralyzing effects of fear…at every encounter.”

The planned jump has already helped The Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation raise money for Global Citizen’s Education Cannot Wait international initiative. Fans donated $10 each for the chance to “hang with Will Smith” at Tuesday’s event (but not hang out of the helicopter!) The contest winner is scheduled to be announced tomorrow, September 21, and maybe we’ll learn the jump time then!

Or just keep checking Smith’s YouTube channel.

And happy 50th, Will!
