Caesars Windsor will be the site of Drop Zone Windsor as regular, everyday people take the plunge down a 27-storey building and rappel down to safety, all to support Ontario’s children and youth with physical disabilities.
Brave participants must raise a minimum of $1,500 in donations as well as participate in a training session with highly trained experts, who will guide participants on the day of the event.
“We are pleased and honoured to partner with Easter Seals to provide the backdrop for what will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Kevin Laforet, President and CEO, Caesars Windsor.
Easter Seals Drop Zone Windsor is one of 17 Canadian cities to host a Drop Zone event in 2013. Nationally, over 3,000 brave rappellers have taken part in Easter Seals Drop Zone events from coast to coast, raising over $4 million for individuals with physical disabilities.
“This event is truly unique and people seeking adventure and looking to challenge themselves, all while benefitting a great organization in our community,” says David Lenz, Senior Development Officer, Easter Seals Ontario.
Proceeds from the Easter Seals Drop Zone Windsor event will help Easter Seals Ontario assist families of kids with physical disabilities with the purchase of costly mobility equipment and communication devices.
Easter Seals also owns and operates two fully accessible camp properties, Camp Woodeden in London, and Camp Merrywood in Perth, and is recognized as an industry leader in providing specialized recreation programs for kids with physical disabilities.
