A handful of people recently bared it all, jumping 150 feet off a bridge in Nanaimo for a good cause.
WildPlay Nanaimo hosted their annual Naked Bungy Jump fundraising event, which sees nude participants bungee jump off a bridge over the Nanaimo River, over the weekend.
This year’s participants, who have to collect pledges valuing $200 or more in order to jump for free, managed to raise $40,000 for Mental Health Recovery Partners, formerly known as BCSS Victoria.
Mental Health Recovery Partners (MHRP) provides life-saving mental health programs, including peer support and wellness recovery action plan programs.
“Raising awareness and support for mental health is possibly more important this year than ever before,” Tom Benson, chief executive officer of WildPlay, said in a press release.
“I am so thrilled with the impact this annual fundraiser has made in our community, and all the more amazing pulling it off this year with social distancing measures in place. Well done to all of the brave souls who came out and jumped in the buff for mental health.”
Naked Bungy Jump has managed to raise more than $350,000 over the last 15 years.
