If you drive by the Landmark buildings in Kelowna today (Sept. 20) you’ll notice people rappelling down the side of the building in support of Easter Seals.
Groups and individuals have been fundraising for the opportunity to step off the top of the 18-storey office building, strapped in with safety gear.
Lise Maurier with National Bank Financial faced her fear of heights to rappel, but said when she first got to the top she wasn’t sure if she was going to die or pee her pants.
“I’m scared to death of heights, so it took everything I had to lean off the top of that building.”
Maurier says with her team they raised about $3,000 for Easter Seals House and Easter Seals Camp.
“I’m really proud of myself for doing it and very excited to help raise money for the children.”
People will be rappelling down the building throughout the day.
Anyone interested in the opportunity can do a last minute walk-up if they raise the minimum $950.
You must be 19 or older to participate.
