Easter Seals Drop Zone

September 16, 2010

I’ve heard about the Easter Seals drop zone that takes place in Victoria for a number of years . The idea is to raise money to send kids with physical disabilities to camp. The people raising money get to rappel off the CIBC building in downtown Victoria, which is a whopping 13 stories or roughly 130 feet high.  The place I work at sponsors the event and I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph this event as well as rappel off the building. When I first got to the top I was a bit weary and hands were getting all sweaty looking over the edge, but by the end of the day my fears had been conquered.

Big thanks go to everyone who raised money for this great cause, as well as the organizers, the rappelling leaders: Matt and Al, and their team, who kept everyone safe as they rappelled down the CIBC building.

As well, thanks to Terry at Loupe Imaging for setting up the templates and printing all the photos.

People were encouraged to dress up in costume. Some of the costumes included: Wonder Woman, Gene Simmons and Marty the Marmot (Salmon Kings mascot), to name a few.  The first two photos are of me.
