Naked Bungy Jump
Don't leave them dangling! Book a Bungy Jump, in the buff, for the BCSS.
Why participate? To "Share The Fruit",
Every year, the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society (BCSS) of Victoria helps over 2300 people - half* of whom may have no other support from friends, co-workers, or family. Often, people with mental illness struggle in silence, fearful that their relationships will unravel because of the stigma of the disease. But having services and a community for support makes a difference.
That's where you come in, because your NAKED BUNGY JUMP for BCSS provides programs, encouragement, and connections!
Join the WildPlay clan, the BCSS, and 200 other dare-to-bare participants (like you) at our notorious Naked Bungy Jump. It's our 9th annual event to bring critical services to those who cope with mental illness - including youth programs, advocacy to raise awareness about schizophrenia, and individual and family support.
100% of net funds raised through guest and spectator fees, donations, and pledges benefit the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society (BCSS) of Victoria.
How to join in:
1. BOOK A SPOT to earn Canada's wackiest bragging rites.
Jump 'nearly-nude', regular rate, $99.99 if any clothing worn.
(Ages 18 years and older only on site during this event.)
2. TAKE YOUR LIFE-CHANGING LEAP!
3. DO MORE BY:
- Bringing your support squad of friends and family who will cheer for the courageous (and the cause). Spectators (ages 18 and older) are welcome to watch this eye-opening event for a minimum $15 donation [collected on site].
- Collecting double-value pledges. Donations to the jump of a Naked Bungy for BCSS participant will be matched by our long-standing anonymous event donor! (Up to $25,000). Just $50 pledged to every jumper will raise $20,000 for the BCSS Victoria (when matched by our anonymous donor). Ask family, friends, and co-workers to donate, or try auctioning off each item of clothing you shed! | Download your BCSS pledge package.
