An information session on the annual Easter Seals Drop Zone fundraiser event will be held Thursday evening.

This year’s Drop Zone will take place on August 18, as individuals rappel 200 feet down the RBC building in support of Manitobans living with disabilities.

There are 100 rappel spots available and all of them sold out quickly last year.

Anyone interested in taking the challenge can attend the information session at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow on the 15th floor of the RBC Building at 220 Portage Avenue. And don’t worry, you’ll be using the elevator to get to the main floor following the session.

Participants are asked to RSVP their attendance by the end of today to (204) 975-3089 or by e-mailing
