Take the plunge in chilly waters on Monday, February 17, at 12:30 p.m., inside Yonge-Dundas Square’s man-made Chill Zone to raise funds for the Sears Canada Charitable Foundation. After checking in with event volunteers, hyperborean splashers, dubbed “Chillers,” can show off chic swim trunks or bikini-cut snow pants during a frosty costume contest. Post-plunge, participants defrost over provided refreshments including hot chocolate, and a host of live performances and activities add to the event’s festive atmosphere.
Sears Great Canadian Chill
Sears Great Canadian Chill, a charity polar bear dip that raises funds and awareness for children’s oncology research and treatment, charges participants to brave shiver-inducing waters in the name of stopping kids’ cancer cold. Event coordinators in Toronto and Ottawa partner up with chillers to participate in the frosty event and train for future careers as polar bears. All of the collected monies are sent to the Sears Canada Charitable Foundation and evenly allocated to support local and national pediatric oncology initiatives. The Toronto Chill is in support of SickKids.
