Information for Drop Zone Halifax 2019

On September 27th, 2019, take your fundraising to new heights and rappel 23 storeys from Halifax’s tallest office tower in support of 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 15 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.
