Conquering Fears to Help Kids in Annual Fundraiser
Conquer the Tower is the new name of the local fundraising event in which business and community representative take the plunge from the towers at the Canada Games Complex and the Thunder Bay Diving Club does an exhibition performance to wow the crowd with their skill and athleticism. The name ‘Conquer the Tower’ clearly represents what these brave participants are actually doing – conquering their fear, all while raising funds to help kids get active and involved in our community.
The proceeds of this annual event support P.R.O. Kids and the Thunder Bay Diving Club. In 2017 this event raised $26,948 bringing the event’s six-year total to $133,962!
Levaero Aviation’s sponsorship, energy, and enthusiasm added a special spark this year, for which we are all deeply grateful. “I’m thrilled that we can support this event. I’ve seen the difference that P.R.O. Kids can make in a child’s life by helping them participate, and we’re proud to be able to play a part in that,” said Robert Arnone, President & CEO of Levaero Aviation.
Businesses can nominate a volunteer who will agree to jump from one of the platforms, based on funds raised by co-workers:
- $300 raised will see participants jump from the 3 metre board
- $500 raised will see participants jump from the 5 metre platform
- $750 raised will see participants jump from the 7.5 metre platform
- $1000 raised will see participants jump from the 10 metre platform
