WHERE: Sunnyside Beach

WHEN: Wednesday, January 1, 2014, noon

WHAT: The Polar Bear Dip, an annual event held by the Toronto Polar Bear Club that sees cold-defying individuals plunge into the frigid waters of Lake Ontario on New Year’s Day. These swimmers aren’t just sub-zero thrill-seekers, though—since 2005, the Polar Bear Dippers have managed to raise more than $130,000 for Habitat for Humanity Toronto. So if you’re feeling generous and warmth-averse next year at around this time, why not shiver in your trunks while helping local families in need of affordable homes?
