The Navy Leap Frogs have agreed to perform their high-flying act at a San Diego-area high school this weekend to raise money for the The Warrior Foundation and The Navy Seal Foundation, both non-profit groups that aim to help service members, veterans, and their families.
Ten members of the Leap Frog team will parachute onto the field of Cathedral Catholic High School in between the girls and boys lacrosse games.
The fundraiser takes place Saturday evening, March 24th at Cathedral Catholic High School's Manchester Stadium.
The Leap Frogs are the official parachute team of the United States Navy. According to the Leap Frogs' website, the team consists of U.S. Navy SEALs and SWCC (Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen) commandos.
Here's some video of Leap Frogs in action, landing at Petco Park in San Diego last year:
