Calling all SUPERHEROES! Once again Saskatoon is hosting The Easter Seals™ Drop Zone challenge, giving YOU the opportunity to participate, challenge yourself and support an amazing cause. Easter Seals™ Drop Zone comes around every August and for many people in the province it’s a chance to honour or support family members living with varying abilities. For some, it’s an adrenaline pumping thrill of a lifetime! We are challenging all SUPERHEROES to participate solo or join as a cape crusading team, raising money to rappel down Carlton Tower in downtown Saskatoon.
