Rappelling down a 22-storey building is not for the faint of heart, but more than 60 people embraced their inner super heroes and did just that as part of the 11th Annual Easter Seal Drop Zone on Sunday, August 23rd. The CENTURY 21 Dome Team spearheaded by Kayla Gerein included Francis Bast, Jason Richard, Logan Drydale, Adam Tondevold and of course our daredevil Kayla enjoyed doing some fancy maneuvers on the way down and can’t wait until next year to do it again.
Jaycee Culham, Easter Seals Ambassador Regina Region, Mayor Michael Fougere, and many family members from grandchildren to grandparents were on hand to cheer on the superheroes.
The CENTURY 21 Dome team raised over $12,000 and is proud to have taken the #1 Team fundraising spot in Regina’s Drop Zone. Francis Bast raised just over $7,500 making him the #1 Individual Fundraiser.
All of the money raised stays in Saskatchewan and supports Camp Easter Seal, a fully accessible facility at Manitou Beach near Watrous which provides children living with disabilities the opportunity to do a lot of activities like horseback riding, canoeing and camping, often for the first time. This year’s Drop Zone raised $84,513.81, which is enough money to provide the camp experience for about 56 kids with special needs.
