Eighty-four women gathered at the ZipZone Adventure Park in Peachland Thursday with one common goal; to raise money for Breast Cancer research.
The women took part in the second annual naked zip line event and raised $15,000 for Cancer research.
Kevin Bennett, owner of ZipZone, says he definitely plans to do this again next year and into the future.
"Absolutely. This has been so successful. It's going to get bigger and better," says Bennett, who adds the feedback from the public has been overwhelming and positive.
"The community has really rallied behind us. We had ladies today of all ages."
Bennett says the oldest participant was a lady named Helen.
"She's 73 and in her 24th year as a breast cancer survivor. She was out there zip lining with us and had a great time."
While he wouldn't elaborate, Bennett says he expects to add to the event next year.
