Annette O'Neil and Joel Strickland made their skydive jump over Arizona, performing an incredible air dance before pulling their chutes. They also completed jumps in New Mexico, are currently headed to Nevada, and eventually, they plan on making skydives in all 50 states (even Alaska and Hawaii) over the next six months, making it the first time the challenge has been completed in one fell swoop.

But they're not just making these jumps to set a record, they're also raising money for Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW). The organization's goal is to honor, empower, and motivate wounded vets. To tell us more, Annette and Joel joined our RTM hosts in the studio, along with Brianne Thompson from Axis Flight School, who partners with OEW to teach veterans to skydive.

Just because there's only one Santa doesn't mean he can't enlist a couple Santa substitutes to spread joy and holiday cheer!

'Adventureman' Returns To Raise More Money For Children's Hospitals - And Joins Us In The RTM Studio!

"Adventureman" (aka Jamie McDonald) is continuing his marathon-a-day across America, raising money for the children's charity, the Superhero Foundation. His trek through the southwest was particularly harrowing since he had to avoid mountain lions, snakes and way more tarantulas than he's comfortable with.  Despite the miles he has to run every day, Jamie McDonald took time to stop by the RTM studio and speak to our hosts about his journey so far and his wonderful charity. You can still donate to the Superhero Foundation since they need your help to make a difference in the lives of children in need. View Now

Crikey! There's A Koala In My Car! & Super Adorable Twins

A winemaker in Adelaide, Australia was surprised to find a koala in his car. The little rascal wouldn't leave and ended up trashing the interior. Finally, the winemaker had to pick up the koala and gently push him back outside. Then, you might think that the Australian Reptile Park only has reptiles. That's an understandable mistake. They have all kinds of animals, including a couple of super adorable koala twins. (For best results, please read the above stories out loud in an Australian accent.) View Now

Photographer Captures Scary Moment Colleague Grabbed By Whale

Divers were about 25 nautical miles off the shore of South Africa checking out a naturally occurring phenomenon, when 51-year-old Rainer Schimpf suddenly found himself trapped inside the mouth of a Bryde's Whale. And like a good photographer, colleague Heinz Toperczer was on the boat getting the perfect shot of Rainer hanging out of the whale's mouth. But it didn't take away from the fear everyone felt in that instant. The Bryde's Whale is not aggressive toward humans and is generally good at sensing when people are around. View Now
