What is Drop Zone®?

The Easter Seals Drop Zone® is a knee-shaking, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping adventure that encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and face your fears by rappelling from the top of a towering high-rise building – all in support of Canadians living with disabilities.  Register as an individual, or better yet, create a team of superheroes and take the Drop Zone® challenge with your friends, family or colleagues, and fundraise to help support programs and services for people living with disabilities.

Whether you’re able-bodied or have a disability, the Easter Seals Drop Zone® gives you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to challenge yourself and change lives! Since 2005, thousands of ordinary people all across Canada have become superheroes for a day in support of Easter Seals.

How does it work and how do I register?

To participate in Drop Zone®, participants will need to register as an individual or as part of a personal or corporate team on the Drop Zone® website at Select a city in which you’d like to rappel. Once you’ve registered, you will automatically be set-up with a personal fundraising page where you can easily make appeals to your contact, track the donations you’ve received and the amounts you’ve fundraised thus far, and also thank all your donors. It’s easy as pie!

Requirements and set-up differ slightly from city to city, but in order to be able to rappel on the day of the event, you and/or your team will need to ensure that you fundraise the minimum fundraising amount/target that has been set for your city.
