Courage Polar Bear Dip
Canada's Largest Polar Bear Dip for Charity!
What are you doing on January 1st? Join hundreds of dippers and thousands of spectators at Coronation Park in Oakville as they take the plunge into the icy cold waters of Lake Ontario to help provide clean water in developing countries. Whether you come to Coronation Park in Oakville on January 1st, 2019 to enjoy the live music and festival atmosphere with family and friends, take part in the dip as a wild way to ring in the new year or join us dressed in your craziest costume to win prizes and later see yourself on the news, it is all for a great cause!
Net proceeds from the Courage Polar Bear Dip have been given to World Vision Canada since 1995. In that time over $1.3 million has been raised and has funded clean water projects around the world. Register for the next Polar Bear Dip and support a great cause – proceeds go to World Vision’s clean water programs to benefit kids and their communities in Rwanda.
Try to arrive before 1:30pm to avoid any last minute rushes at the registration desk. To make the process quicker, please have your Registration Form filled out before you arrive. If you are taking part in the costume contest at 1:15pm, try to arrive by 1pm.
