Are you looking for an adventure? A challenge? A thrill? Well, look no further, you can get all three right here in downtown Ottawa on the morning of August 18.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to join the ranks of the Ottawa YMCA-YWCA’s most fearless fundraisers, put your helmet on, strap in and get ready to rappel down the 16 stories of the Taggart Family Y building this Thursday.
This adrenaline rush is more than just a daring stunt – it’s an energizing opportunity to directly support families and individuals in the National Capital Region!

This year, all funds raised will help make camp experiences possible for kids. Raising $1000 to participate in the event might sound difficult at first, but the Y provides tips and tricks to achieve your fundraising goal. You also have the chance to compete as a team with your adventure-loving friends.

To get you even more motivated: $1000 is enough to send five kids to camp this summer!

To take the fear away from those who aren’t convinced yet: Everything will be safe and there will be professionals onsite showing you how to do everything. No experience is required for the adventure, just a little bit of bravery.



The YMCA-YWCA is a non-profit, charitable association that promotes healthy living, provides programming for youth and community members, helps those in need of support and so much more. From housing to summer camps, the Y is there. This is your opportunity to raise money for those programs that help so many people in the Capital.
