What: Be a superhero for our Easter Seals kids at  our 9th annual dizzying, knee-shaking, adrenaline-pumping pulse pounding 20-storey rappel down the outside of  Morguard’s 280 Slater St location, while astonished onlookers gaze up into the sky in amazement.

Who: Anyone over the age of 18 who is willing to step outside their comfort zone and face their fears!

How: By raising a minimum of $1,500, participants earn the opportunity of a lifetime to participate in this truly unique and exhilarating event.

Why: To raise money for children and youth with physical disabilities in Ontario.  Since 2010, Drop Zone Ottawa superheroes have raised over $700,000 for Easter Seals kids!

Drop Zone Ottawa is a unique and exhilarating fundraising event that encourages ordinary individuals to become superheroes for a day. Participants step outside their comfort zones and face their fears by rappelling from the top of a 20-storey building, while raising a minimum of $1,500 for Easter Seals kids.

Drop Zone Ottawa is a great way to challenge yourself or a team of colleagues to fundraise money for kids with physical disabilities, while earning the opportunity to be a team of superheroes for a day by rappelling down a 20-storey building!
