This knee-shaking, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping fundraising adventure encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and face your fears by rappelling from Nova Scotia's tallest office tower at 1801 Hollis St. in Halifax (23-storeys!) — all in support of Nova Scotians with disabilities. By fundraising a minimum of $1,500, ordinary people are becoming superheroes for a day as they challenge themselves and change lives. If you create or join a team, your fundraising goal becomes $1,250 per team member.
The Drop Zone is one of our signature fundraising events in support of our programs and services. It’s fun and extremely exhilarating! In 2017, the Drop Zone will take place on Friday, September 29th. Check out pictures from last year's Drop Zone rappel!
Where do the funds go?
Funds raised from the Drop Zone go to our programs for Nova Scotians with disabilities. While Drop Zone is a national Easter Seals campaign with events taking place in many provinces, 100 percent of funds raised for Nova Scotia's Drop Zone remain in Nova Scotia. The money you raise enables us to keep our barrier-free summer Camp Tidnish physically and financially accessible to our campers, helps us provide affordable wheelchairs and mobility equipment, assists us with our inclusive sport programs, and supports our skills and workplace training services for Nova Scotians with disabilities. We help 2,700 people annually.
