It’s a Vancouver bucket list item that you might not have even considered before. Sign up for The Drop Zone for Easter Seals and you can rappel down a 20-storey office tower in downtown Vancouver — all for a great cause!

Easter Seals Drop Zone, Vancouver’s original charity rappelling event, is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 from 8:00am to 5:00pm. The 20-storey rappel challenges participants to step out of their comfort zones and conquer their fears, all while raising funds for Easter Seals BC.

DropZoneRegister now to start your fundraising for Easter Seals and if you reach $1,000 or more, you can participate in The Drop Zone taking place Wednesday, September 9, 2015 at 999 West Hastings in Downtown Vancouver. The money raised will benefit Easter Seals House in Vancouver as well as summer camps for children with disabilities in Shawnigan, Winfield and Squamish.

Since 2005, nearly 6,000 superheroes have joined the exclusive Superhero Club for Easter Seals, raising more than $10 million dollars for Canadians with disabilities. Be part of a formidable group of heroes and continue this amazing fundraising trend in 2014. By doing so you will make a big difference for families living with disabilities.

Easter Seals is dedicated to fully enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination of Canadians living with disabilities by providing programs and support in these areas: Active Living; Family & Community Support; Assistive Devices Programs.
