"The view is amazing and it was fun! I would love to do it again next year and would love to raise more money for Easter Seals. You get to do something really awesome and push your limits. I encourage other people to raise money and do it as well."
~ Annalisa King, Team Terminal Club City
"The Drop Zone event Easter Seals hosts every year encourages us to get out of our comfort zone and challenge ourselves just like the amazing campers do every day."
~ Debra Hewson, President & CEO Odlum Brown
For 75 years Easter Seals BC & Yukon has been an established leader in supporting the disabled community through Easter Seals Camps and Easter Seals House.
Easter Seals Camps are a place where everyone is welcome and no one hears the word ‘no’. It’s a place where campers can be themselves, and explore and develop their abilities in a safe, warm, fun and supportive environment. Campers return home with new friendships, improved skills, and become more independent and active members of their communities. Camp offers both a magical experience for campers, and an important week of respite for families and caregivers.
Easter Seals House offers an affordable home-away-from-home for adults and families who travel to Vancouver for medical treatment. For so many, knowing Easter Seals House is here gives them a sense of peace and calmness, during very hard times. Located just blocks away from the best hospitals and treatment centres, makes it easy for guests and caregivers to travel to and from.

Take the Drop Zone challenge!
Join us in celebrating our 75th birthday year by participating in Drop Zone 2022!
Easter Seals is challenging YOU to step up, face your fears and rappel down a towering a high-rise building like a Superhero - all in support of children and adults with disabilities!
What began as a simple transportation service for children with disabilities in 1947, has evolved to meet the changing needs of our communities today. 2022 is our 75th birthday and it's because of fundraisers and Drop Zone participants like you that we have reached this milestone. Our work is only possible because of the community that supports us.
That’s where you come in. Easter Seals is challenging YOU to be a Superhero for children and adults with disabilities! Your support allows Easter Seals to make the lives of those with disabilities better by improving their independence, confidence, personal development, social awareness and much more. Together with YOU, we're improving lives and building stronger communities.
Register as an individual, create a team or take the Drop Zone challenge with your friends, family or colleagues. You'll get your own personal fundraising page with tools to invite others, spread the word, share your photos and fundraise for Easter Seals.
The minimum fundraising amount Drop Zone Superheroes commit to is $875 and the best part is you have until October 15th, 2022 to fundraise!
