Courage Polar Bear Dip 2020

Hundreds of brave souls ran into icy Lake Ontario at Bronte Beach Park on New Year’s Day to raise funds for clean water in developing countries through World Vision. A 35-year tradition, the annual Courage Polar Bear Dip was held at Bronte park this time, a much safer location with its sandy shoreline.

All organized by brothers Trent and Todd Courage, there was live music on stage by singer/guitarist Mike Waling and a festive atmosphere throughout the park. The crazy costume contest, overseen by Trent, is always fun and this year was no exception. There was a Raptor, Elvis, some Vikings, and Irishmen, and much more.


“It was a great day at Bronte Beach Park today” said Todd Courage, “We raised over $120,000 and almost $2 million to date — a fantastic year yet again“. Something to really be proud of for all participants!
