Event Details

Do you have what it takes?

When: Thursday, September 27, 2018

Where:  Artis REIT, 415 Yonge Street, Toronto.

What: Drop Zone Toronto is a dizzying, knee-shaking, pulse pounding rappel down the outside of a high rise building, 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. There is a $50 registration fee which will be added to your fundraising minimum. A tax receipt will be provided following the event.

Returning rappellers: receive a special fundraising minimum of $1,000 for 2018!

First time rappellers:  fundraising minimum of $1,500.

Why: To raise funds to help children and youth with physical disabilities get essential mobility and accessibility equipment and have the opportunity to attend fully accessible summer camp.

In 2017, our brave superheroes raised over $208,000 for Easter Seals kids! Easter Seals Ontario provides programs and services to children and youth with physical disabilities across Ontario to help them achieve greater independence, accessibility and integration.

Easter Seals Ontario provides important programs and services for children with physical disabilities. We offer funding to help children get essential mobility and accessibility equipment such as wheelchairs, home ramps and van lifts. This equipment is very costly and quite often families cannot afford all the equipment their child needs. We also own and operate two fully accessible summer camps, where kids with physical disabilities have the opportunity to stay away from home gain a sense of independence. Our camps also offer kids the chance to experience a wide range of activities, such as a high ropes course, an indoor climbing wall, sailing and kayaking, the same as other kids. Together we are helping kids BE KIDS.

The rappel is facilitated by Tacten, a company whose staff are all highly-trained, fully certified and extremely experienced. Every possible measure is taken to ensure the safety of our rappellers as they challenge themselves and change the lives of children and youth with physical disabilities.
