Bungy Jump Naked for Mental Illness

SPECIAL EVENTS
“Free from stigma, fear and your pants” says Wildplay’s website regarding the upcoming Naked Bungy Jump for charity event on February 18 and 19, 2017. You can be a part of making a difference with a 150-foot naked bungy jump for free when you bring in $200 in pledges, plus, every pledge dollar you raise will be doubled.

Money raised during the jump will go toward helping British Columbia Schizophrenia Societies of Victoria and Nanaimo give mental health assistance to more than 2300 people this year (half* of whom may not have other support from friends, co-workers, or family). That includes all kinds of youth, advocacy, and awareness programs about schizophrenia – as well as individual and family support.

The event will be held at WildPlay located at 35 Nanaimo River Rd., Nanaimo, BC V9X 1S5. You must be 18 years of age or older and NO PHOTOGRAPHY will be allowed on site during the event to ensure the privacy of participants. However, those participating can receive photos of their jump from a professional photographer for free afterward via email if you dare. Snacks including s’mores will be available to purchase on site.
