Information for Drop Zone Halifax 2023

On a Friday in September 2023 (date to-be-confirmed), 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 of 4 people.

  • The minimum fundraising amount required to rappel as an individual is $1,500
  • A minimum of 4 persons must be signed up to be considered a team. The minimum fundraising amount is $1,250 per team member, or $5,000 per team 4. Every additional team member is $1,250.

Training will be provided prior to the event date. A mobile training wall will also be available on the day of the event for participants to do  final practices, if they wish, prior to the actual rappel.
