Naked Bungy Jump

Naked Bungy Jump

Don't leave them dangling! Book a Bungy Jump, in the buff, for the BCSS.

Only Feb. 21 and Feb. 22, 2015 at WildPlay Nanaimo


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 naked for a special once-a-year rate of $35.00, pre-registered for February 21 and February 22, 2015 (10AM to 5PM), or by calling 1-855-595-2251. $45.00 on-site during the event. 

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.

How revealing!

  • Just 50% of Canadians would tell friends or co-workers that they have a family member with a mental illness, compared to 72% who would discuss a diagnosis of cancer and 68% who would talk about a family member having diabetes.*
  • The BCSS Victoria manages 7,000 phone/email messages related to support for people with schizophrenia each year.
  • 42% of Canadians are unsure whether they would socialize with a friend who has a mental illness.*
  • The mission of 60 Society volunteers, and 19 full- and part-time employees, in Victoria is to improve the quality of life for those affected by schizophrenia and psychosis.

This event helps the BCSS [British Columbia Schizophrenia Society], Victoria support over 2300 people every year.
