Event Details

Do you have what it takes?

Drop Zone is one of our signature fundraising events in support of our programs and services for Albertans with disabilities. It involves a 28-storey rappel from the top of one of Calgary’s tallest downtown office towers. It’s fun and extremely exhilarating! Participants must raise a minimum of $1,100 to rappel. In 2017, the Drop Zone will take place on Wednesday, September 6th.

Where Do The Funds Go?

Funds raised from the Drop Zone go to our programs for Albertans with disabilities. While Drop Zone is a national Easter Seals campaign with events taking place in many provinces, 100 percent of funds raised for Calgary’s Drop Zone remain in Alberta. The money you raise enables us to keep our summer Camp Horizon physically and financially accessible to our campers, helps us provide affordable wheelchairs and mobility equipment, and supports our services for Albertans with disabilities.

Register now for the Drop Zone, one of our signature fundraising events, in support of our programs and services for Albertans with disabilities. Rappel from the top of one of Calgary’s tallest downtown office towers at (28 storeys). It’s fun and extremely exhilarating! Participants must raise a minimum of $1,100 to rappel.
