Toronto Polar Bear Dip in support of Boost CYAC
The Toronto Polar Bear Club was started in 2005 by three guys who wanted to share our love of the Polar Bear Dip with Toronto and to raise funds for great charities that provide services to the people of Toronto. That first year we managed to convince 20 people to jump into Lake Ontario on January 1st. Now we get over 500.
The "club" is simply the collection of volunteers that donate their time and resources to pulling this event off every year.
All funds raised by the Polar Bear Dip go directly to Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre
Boost Child and Youth Advocacy Center is an amazing organization in Toronto that answers the call when a child or youth under 18 is the victim of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, or neglect. Boost CYAC offers a number of direct services to children and youth including: trauma assessment, therapy, court preparation for child witnesses as well as primary prevention and public education programs.
Toronto Polar Bear Club is proud to support their efforts across the city especially as they work to expand their reach.
