Adventure-seekers wanting to scale the walls of the RBC building 200 feet above Portage Avenue are invited to an upcoming information session.

The 2013 Easter Seals Drop Zone will be held in Winnipeg on August 15 and fundraise for the SMD Foundation/Easter Seals in support of children and adults with disabilities.

Individuals who raise a minimum of $1,500 for the cause will suit up to rappel down the side of the building late this summer.

To find out if it’s of interest to you, organizers will hold an information night on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. on the 15th floor of 220 Portage Avenue. The session will outline the details of the event and participants will be able to register as individuals and teams for the 100 available spots.

To attend, RSVP by April 10 by calling (204) 975-3084 or e-mail dropzone@smd.mb.ca.
