Take a Flyin' Leap
Posted by: Charissa, Janrod, Heidi, Colleen and Lara
No....we didn't flip the boss the bird....(that would get us fired!)....but we did tell him to take a flyin' leap off of Saskatoon's tallest building....(that won't get us fired!?!?).... to raise money for a great cause.
What makes this flyin' leap so interesting is that Virgil has a fear of heights. Yes, Virgil is our team's fearless leader and is happy to lead his team into battle, but only if that battle takes place on the ground.
So in order to prepare Virgil for his repel off the Carlton Tower, we have been working with him in the office in an intense 'fear of heights boot camp' to conquer his fear of heights. Our boot camp has been so successful that he no longer cries when he is required to climb a step ladder to change a light bulb....on an 8ft ceiling (we still keep the Kleenex close by just in case he has a regression). We are very proud of his accomplishment and have no doubt that by August 25, 2014 he will be ready to take the leap off of the Carlton Tower.
But wait there is a catch, Virgil is only going to conquer his fear of heights if we are able to raise $1500 for Easter Seals by August 18, 2014. We don't want to see all of Virgil's super hero training on the step ladder be for nothing.
In keeping with the Easter Seals super heroes theme, Virgil will be doing the jump in costume. Donations made in Virgil Reed's name over $20 will receive a signed photo of our very own SuperVirgil on jump day in full costume. Costume suggestions are welcome with all donations.
Whether you are able to donate or not please feel free to come join the events on August 25, 2014 and support a great cause.
PLUS: Reed Security will Match Your Donation until we reach our $1500 goal!
