Easter Seals BC is inviting thrill-seekers from across the Lower Mainland to take part in their annual Drop Zone event, where you can rappel down a 20-storey downtown Vancouver office building! This adrenaline-inducing fundraiser takes place on September 13th in Downtown Vancouver, and raises funds and funds and awareness for the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.

Easter Seals BC Drop Zone

Easter Seals Drop Zone 2010

Where: 999 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
When: Tuesday, September 13, 2016 from 8:00am to 5:00pm
Register: Register now until September 7th.

Participants who are brave enough to take part in the event are required to fundraise a minimum of $1,000 to participate. Last year, the event saw 65 rappellers take the plunge and over $188,000 was raised in support of Easter Seals BC. This year, Easter Seals BC hopes to have even more participants take part in this unique and exhilarating event for a great cause.

The Drop Zone raises much-needed funds to help fund the Easter Seals House Vancouver and sends children with disabilities to accessible Easter Seals camps in BC. The BC Lions Society is a non-profit that aims to enrich the lives of children in BC and the Yukon by providing programs and services, like specialized, accessible camps for children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.

I participated back in 2010 and years later I still get to tell the story of “that time I rappelled down the side of an office building in Downtown Vancouver” — it was such a thrill!

Participants can win prizes if they are some of the top overall fundraisers and finishers, you get to wear costumes (your chance to dress up like a superhero) and you’re invited to join in climbing sessions in advance of event day. It’s such an invigorating experience, all for a fantastic cause. If you can’t participate, consider donating online to support Easter Seals BC.

Enter to Win

I have a 4-pack of Sea Vancouver tickets to give away to one lucky Miss604 reader who would like to enjoy a different adventure around Vancouver. Launching from the Westin Bayshore Hotel, Sea Vancouver’s open-air, purpose built, zodiac-style vessels are Vancouver’s fastest and safest way to view the city from the sea. Cruise the harbour, and rip across the inlet to see the city from a whole new perspective on this guided tour.
