Clarington Polar
Bear Swim

Also known as the "Dash of Insanity" and the "Plunge for Life", swimmers brave the icy cold waters of Lake Ontario.

The swimmers will be "swimming" at  2pm, but come early to register and to enjoy food and music!

This year we are raising funds for the Hollylynn Towie Scholarship Fund which provides financial support to students with Autism from the Durham Region who are pursuing post secondary education.

Are you crazy enough to join us?

Note:  All money raised will be donated to Autism Ontario Durham Region who administers the Hollylynn Towie Scholarship Fund.


When: January 1, 2017
Where: Newcastle Waterfront,
Mill St. S. (Take the Mill St. exit off the 401 and follow it down to the waterfront.)
How: Register to participate and collect sponsors, or make a donation.


The first 100 swimmers to raise at least $30 in pledges will get a fantastic Goody Bag filled with a t-shirt and lots of surprises!

PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!  The top fundraisers will receive great prizes!
