I am terrified of heights. So, so terrified of heights. And the thought of doing rappelling off a 20-storey high rise makes me nauseous.
But I try to live by the law of Tina Fey: “Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterward.” So when my friends at Easter Seals asked if I wanted to do The Drop Zone this year, I felt like I was going to be sick and then I said yes.
Funds from this adrenaline-fuelled event support two causes close to my heart: Easter Seals Camps, which are fully accessible sleep-away camps for children with disabilities. And Easter Seals House, a supportive place where families can stay while their little ones receive care at BC Children’s Hospital.
