Instead of staring blankly into your bowl of cereal during breakfast this morning, tune in to Citytv’s Breakfast Television to catch host Dawn Chubai and Metro reporter Kristen Thompson rappelling down a 20-storey building. At 8:45 a.m., the duo will be participating in Drop Zone Vancouver, an annual event daring thrill-seekers to strap into a harness and step over the ledge of a Vancouver skyscraper to raise money for Easter Seals.
Last year, more than 70 people — many of them dressed as superheroes — raised more than $228,000 for B.C. children with disabilities. The event takes place at 999 W. Hastings St.
