Information for Drop Zone Kelowna 2023

Do you love to challenge yourself and help others? Then you can’t pass up the Easter Seals Drop Zone in Kelowna on Tuesday, September 26, 2023. Drop Zone is back and ready for a new set of superheroes!

Maybe you’ve walked, run or biked for a cause. Now here’s a taller challenge to take you over the top and down the side of an 23-storey office building! The Drop Zone in Kelowna challenges fearless participants to pay or raise a minimum amount in support of Easter Seals for the rare opportunity to rappel down a skyscraper.

Minimum Fundraising Goal: Raise $875 minimum to rappel

You have until October 15th, 2023 to raise the minimum fundraising requirements!

Take a look at our video for a sneak peek of what the day might look like and stay up to date with event news by signing up for our newsletter!

Why Rappel?

The hard-earned fundraising dollars support two essential services that Easter Seals BC/Yukon provides: Easter Seals House and Easter Seals Camp. Easter Seals House in Vancouver provides a home away from home for adults and families travelling to Vancouver for medical appointments. Easter Seals camps range from virtual, to week-long overnight camps, for all children and adults with disabilities aged 6-49 years old. Watch some of our videos that capture the true essence of what Easter Seals Camp is all about!

Your support truly makes a difference. Become a Superhero for Easter Seals BCY TODAY! It will definitely be an experience that you won’t forget! #EasterSealsDropZoneBC
