We are welcoming local and corporate companies/businesses of any kind to participate. As long as there is at least one boss and one employee, anyone is welcome to join! Unfortunately, no solo jumpers without at least one team member are permitted. We want this to be an exciting team-building exercise!
The team members are fundraising for the opportunity to nominate the boss for a bungy jump.
The event will take place at WildPlay, Nanaimo on October 1, 2021. You will be given a time slot on event day.
Yes, make sure to include your boss in your team. In order to register, a company team must include at least one boss and one employee. There is no maximum for the number of team members that can join in and cheer the boss on. The more the merrier!
First, make sure your company team has not already been registered by another team member. If your team has already been registered, refer to 'How to Join a Company Team' listed below. If your team has not been registered, click the 'Sign Up' tab, and click 'Create a Team' and fill out the form with your company information. Once your company team has been approved, you can begin building your company profile, as well as your participant profile.
Follow the 'Sign Up' tab and click 'Join a Team.' Find your company name and click 'Join this Team.' You can then fill out the form to begin building your participant profile. The nominated boss and every team member must register in order to participate.
You can send out your profile link to friends and family by using any of the social media platform links on your participant profile page. Try to send out the link using your participant profile within your company team, rather than using the link to your team profile. This helps to track the donations that you advertised for and assign them to your participant profile. However, if you advertise the link to your company team profile, donors can also assign their donations to the participants in the team. You can also get some fundraising tips using the 'How to Get Started' packet under 'Tips & Tools' once your profile is created. Remember, the individual who fundraised the most in the competition will receive a grand prize so it is important to correctly assign your donations.
You can find some tips for getting your fundraising campaign started using the 'How to Get Started' link under 'Tips & Tools' once you create your profile. Remember, an eye-catching profile goes a long way, so make sure to include pictures and a personal story.
The company team must fundraise a collective minimum of $500 in order to nominate their boss for a bungy jump. There is no minimum requirement for each participant to raise as long as this minimum goal is met. However, to encourage teams and individuals to raise more money beyond the minimum requirement, we have included some exciting grand prizes for the top fundraisers.
There are a total of two possible grand prizes for team members and team companies to compete for. The company team to collectively fundraise the most will be awarded a 'Team Day at WildPlay' for a later date. The individual who fundraises the most throughout the entire competition will receive a mountain bike from Westshore Bikes!
If the boss of your company team declines to bungy jump, they may either abstain from the bungy jump entirely or nominate a teammate to take their place. If either of these options is selected, the company will be required to double its donation to a maximum of an additional $1000. This ensures that companies will not be penalized for fundraising beyond the minimum amount.
