The fight against breast cancer went airborne Saturday, as participants in 'Jump For The Cause' brought awareness while trying to break a record.
Nearly 200 women attempted breaking the women's formation skydiving record.
The participants broke the record with 181 participants from 31 countries.
The participants also set another record, raising more than $900,000 for breast cancer research.
Similar events in 1999, 2002, and 2005 have raised a combined total of more than $1 million.
