15 bone-chilling photos of the annual Polar Bear Dip
A couple hundred brave souls rang in the new year at Sunnyside Beach yesterday morning by going for one frigid swim as part of the 10th annual Polar Bear Dip. The temperature outdoors at start time was -2 Celsius while the water was estimated at skin-stinging 3 degrees. Lest you think participants are completely whacked, it's worth noting that $70,000 was raised for Habitat for Humanity in conjunction with this year's event. That's pretty good for what tends to amount to a 30 second swim.
