BUNGY JUMP NAKED – YOU'RE KIDDING ME, RIGHT?

Nope. Your leap, pledges, and spectator donations help the British Columbia Schizophrenia Societies (BCSS) of Victoria and Nanaimo give mental health assistance to more than 2300 people this year (half* of whom may not have other support from friends, co-workers, or family). That includes all kinds of youth, advocacy, and awareness programs about schizophrenia – as well as individual and family support.

TOTAL FREEDOM!

Your participation reduces the perceived stigma of mental illness and makes the subject a lot less scary for everyone – and you don’t have to be an expert either. Use this great information from the BCSS online to let other people know why this event is important to you.

Plus there's your own free-from-fear (and clothing) experience! You'll have the coolest adventure story of everyone you know.

Only 160 participants (age 18 or older) will get to go over the edge this year. Get a spot early:

  1. BOOK ONLINE OR CALL 1-855-595-2251
    Bungy Jump naked for a special once-a-year rate of $55.00 (pre-registered). You can take your chances at a walk-in spot ($65.00), but this event is likely to sell-out in advance. If you’re shy, you can Bungy Jump 'nearly-nude' at the regular rate, $129.99.
  2. COLLECT PLEDGES
    Every dollar frees up resources at the BCSS in Victoria and in Nanaimo to help people who come to them for support. Use this Pledge Package to ask people you know to chip-in to your effort. PLUS: If you turn in $200 in pledges at/by the event you’ll get to Bungy Jump for FREE! And all pledge amounts are matched by an anonymous donor (up to $25,000)!
  3. INVITE A FEW FRIENDS
    Have people cheer you on. Spectators (at least 18 years old) are welcome to the event for a minimum $15 donation (collected on site).
  4. BUNGY JUMP!
  • Only people age 18 years and older will be permitted on site during this event.
  • Regular Bungy Jump access requirements and Park Rules apply.
  • No photography is allowed anywhere on site during the event. We’re sure your intentions are good; however, we stand by this rule at all times to fairly protect the privacy of participants. Anyone using a camera or recording device/method will not be able to remain in the Park. BUT, participants can still get pics! For those who wish, we have a professional photographer who will take photos of your Bungy Jump, for free, and will email the images to you individually soon after the event.
  • Plan to be comfortable - before and after you jump. We recommend dressing in layers, having a friend hang onto your clothes for after your plunge, and bringing a lightweight pair of flip flops for the walk back up the cliff.
  • Snacks – including s’mores – are available to buy on site.
  • Pledge monies and completed forms must be received by the BCSS Victoria no later than February 19, 2016. Pre-booked Bungy Jump fees will be refunded at event check-in for participants confirmed by the BCSS to have turned-in $200+ in pledges for the 2017 Naked Bungy Jump event. Refunds or matched pledges will not be issued after the Bungy Jump has been completed.
  • 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.
