— Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page planned a parachute jump Monday to benefit Special Olympics.

Page will join members of the All Veterans Parachute team, and tandem jump with the same team member who guided a jump for former President George H.W. Bush a few months ago for his 90th birthday.

Page got local businesses to ante up $2,500 for Special Olympics of North Carolina to sponsor his jump.
