About The Drop Zone

The Easter Seals Drop Zone is a knee-shaking, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping fundraising adventure that encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and face your fears by rappelling from the top of a towering high-rise building – all in support of Canadians living with disabilities. By fundraising a minimum of $1,500 (less in select cities), ordinary people all across Canada are becoming superheroes for a day as they challenge themselves and change lives.

For more than 95 years, Easter Seals has encouraged Canadians living with disabilities to live life actively, pushing boundaries to contribute to the well-being of themselves and their communities. The Easter Seals Drop Zone challenges participants to do exactly that.

Since 2005, Drop Zone events across the country have collectively raised over $16 million, and nearly 8,500 brave superheroes have stepped off the edge in support of Easter Seals.

Drop Zone events are taking place in provinces and cities all across Canada. Register to rappel as an individual or recruit your family, friends or colleagues to create a team of superheroes.
