August 22, 2017 will see participants become real life SUPERHEROES by conquering their fears and raising a minimum of $1,500. In completing this challenge, participants will rappel down the Manitoba Hydro Building at 360 Portage Ave and help change the lives of Manitoba children, youth and adults with disabilities. Our own John Wichers is one of these SUPERHEROES that has registered for this once in a lifetime experience, for a SECOND TIME!! John has taken on many different forms of fundraising: everything from pledged walks to a cycling event that took him across Western Canada. He went to new heights with the 2016 Drop Zone and now he’s back to do it again for the 2017 event, which is occuring just before his 80th birthday celebration!
