More than 600 brave participants dared to dip into the chilly waters of Lake Ontario on New Year’s Day, January 1st at the 12th Annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip at Sunnyside Beach.  Organized by the Toronto Polar Bear Club, this invigorating event raises funds for Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area. Habitat for Humanity GTA is a non-profit housing organization working with communities to build homes with local families in need of affordable housing, so that they can build a better life. More than $65,000 has been raised so far.
