Calgary Icebreaker Polar Dip: Bathtub Edition!

Bernie and Ross, and scores of other daring Dipsters have now completed the 11 Second Ice Dip. This is the pandemic-appropriate bathtub version of the traditional annual Calgary Icebreaker Polar Dip. In our case (because we wanted to do this together) our “bathtub” was the same frozen pond in Discovery Ridge, Calgary where the Icebreaker started back in 2010.

Here is a video of our Dip that also has scenes of many others doing the 11 Second Ice Dip in a variety of very cool (cold) settings.

As you know, the Icebreaker is a fun event that targets the terrible reality of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. It supports the great work of the SA Foundation in eight countries around the world. The UN estimates that 3.8 million adults and 1 million children are victims of forced sexual exploitation around the world. And it is happening right here. Last month two people were charged with trafficking a 15 year old girl in a hotel…literally in the same block as Ross's office in downtown Calgary.

We are hugely excited that this year’s event has already raised over $90,000 of our $100,000 goal! Thank you so much to those who have already donated. And thanks to Jill and Mel and dozens of others have taken on the role of coordinating this event and done such a great job in very challenging times.

IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE SO ALREADY, PLEASE SPONSOR OUR DIP; AND/OR REGISTER TO DO YOUR OWN 11 SECOND ICE DIP!  Click this link for more information on the DIP and how to give!
