Polar Bear Dip in Owen Sound

Owen Sound | by Bayshore News Staff  

People will jump into Georgian Bay to raise funds for Special Olympics.

The 14th annual Polar Bear Dip in Owen Sound is taking place on Saturday.

It's being held at the Bayshore Community Centre and it's hosted by the Owen Sound Police Services, with all the proceeds going towards the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

Registration is set for 12 PM and the dip itself will get underway at 1 PM.

Each group is required to raise 75 dollars to participate.

Lindsay Neal of the Owen Sound Police Service tells Bayshore Broadcasting News there goal is to raise 10-thousand dollars and they'd like to have 100 'dippers'.

Neal will also be plunging into the frigid March water, but she admits there's very little ice and they'll most likely be running in instead.

There will be awards for Top Individual Fundraiser.

Awards will also be given for the Most Outrageous Costume.

Bayshore Broadcasting will be there as our team prepares to take the dip for the Special Olympics.

If you think you've got the nerve, it's not to late to register!

You, your friends and your co-workers are encouraged to take the chilly plunge into beautiful Georgian Bay for a good cause...
