About the Toronto Polar Bear Club:

The Toronto Polar Bear club is a volunteer group committed to "do the dip". It is a refreshing way to start the new year, plus we're helping a great charity at the same time.

Come join us.  Many of our dippers come annually and a few have been dipping with us from the beginning.  If this is your first time out, we look forward to seeing you.

About the Charity:

We are raising money again this year for Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre (Boost CYAC), so please encourage everyone you know to sponsor your dip.  100% of fundraising dollars from the dip will go to Boost CYAC, an organization committed to eliminating abuse and violence in the lives of children, youth and their families. They respond to all sexual offenses, and the most severe physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and violence towards children and youth under 18 years in Toronto, Ontario. Boost CYAC also offers a number of direct services including, primary prevention, public education, trauma assessment and therapy and court preparation for child witnesses.
