  • A registration fee must be paid at the time of registration. This fee is non-refundable and is not eligible for a tax receipt, but will count towards your fundraising total. For example, if a participant registers in Vancouver they will be required to fundraise at least $800.
  • You have until October 14th, 2019 to raise the minimum fundraising requirements!
For Victoria: Raise $500 minimum
For Vancouver: Raise $850 minimum
For Surrey: Raise $850 minimum
Last minute/walk ups - Raise $950 minimum
  • If we haven't received your minimum fundraising requirements by midnight on October 14th, 2019, we will automatically charge your credit card on file.  
  • Teams are encouraged for this event as it’s not only fun to rappel alongside others you know, but also easier to fundraise collectively as a group. Teams still need to raise the minimum multiplied by the number of individuals in that team, but you can raise the money collectively. For example, if you have a team of four (For Vancouver and Surrey, 4 x $850. For Victoria, 4 x $500), then you’ll need to raise a minimum of $3,400 (Vancouver and Surrey) or $2,000 (Victoria), but if one person is a super fundraiser, then the rest of the team will just fundraise for the remaining amount. If a team of people raise funds but only are able to make it to $850 (Vancouver and Surrey) or $500 (Victoria), then only one person from that team can rappel.

  • Weight restrictions for the rappelling apparatus are also in effect. The maximum weight for rappellers is 275lbs. If you weigh more than this, please notify us when you register.
  • Weather Alert - If our technical crew determines that conditions are unsafe for rappelling, they will either delay the event until it’s safe to go ahead, or they will postpone the event to a pre-determined scheduled “rain date”.

  • The charitable Registration Number for the BC events is 11921 7248 RR0001.
