Information for Drop Zone Victoria 2018

On September 21st, take your fundraising to new heights and rappel 23 storeys from Halifax’s tallest office tower for Nova Scotians with disabilities! Drop Zone is an adrenaline-inducing adventure featuring a view like no other! And you’re supporting our barrier-free programs that promote mobility, inclusion, and independence.

We’ve run this event smoothly and professionally for 14 years. We engage a local company to look after the technical requirements of the drop, and it handles our event with care and safety uppermost in mind. The crew provides training to all participants before Drop Zone day, as well as a refresher on the day of the rappel. All essential equipment is provided.

You can register as an individual, or as part of a team. Minimum fundraising amount required to rappel is: $1,500 for an individual, $1,250 per person for a team of two or more. Upon registration, there is a registration fee of $20 per person to confirm your participation. This fee will be applied to your fundraising goal.

For more information, contact: Tom O’Handley at tom.ohandley@easterseals.ns.ca or 902.453.6000 ext. 220
