If you look up way up at the intersection of Portage and Main today, you may see some tiny specks rappelling down a 17-storey building — those are fearless fundraisers.

The 2014 Easter Seals Drop Zone is raising funds for the SMD Foundation/Easter Seals Manitoba to support children, youth and adults with disabilities in the province.

Participants are rappelling down the side of the RBC Building as part of the annual event, conquering any fear of heights they ever had.

The Drop Zone supports and sustains vital programs and services that reach over 47,000 people living with disabilities.
