Your chance to plunge off the side of Windsor’s tallest building is back, this fall.

Local thrill seekers are invited to challenge themselves to take the ‘plunge’ down the 27-storey Augustus Tower at Caesars Windsor and rappel down to safety – all to help support Ontario’s children and youth with physical disabilities.

The Easter Seals Drop Zone will take place on Tuesday, October 6th and participants are required to raise a minimum of $1,500 in donations to take part. Training for all participants is required and will be provided by skilled experts who will guide participants on the day of the event.

The event had 64 participants in 2014 and funds raised provided financial assistance for expensive mobility equipment and communication devices and provided opportunities for kids to attend fully accessible Easter Seals summer camp.

Organizers say this is the last year for this event at Caesars Windsor.
