September 13, 2016 - Conquer the Tower is the new name of the local fundraising event that will see business and community representatives taking a plunge from the towers at the Canada Games Complex on Thursday, Nov. 10. 

Proceeds will support P.R.O. Kids and the Thunder Bay Diving Club.

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

"If the individual finds themselves a little too high for their liking, they can buy their way down for $250 per level. The event also includes an exhibition from the Thunder Bay Diving Club members," said Laura Daniele, P.R.O. Kids Coordinator.

"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."

This year's event is presented by Levaero Aviation. 

"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.
