A fun and icy annual community fundraising event that was retired in 2015.
Past fun with Synergy and YELL
For seven years, during the annual Chestermere Winter Festival, YELL Youth Council challenged brave community members to take the plunge into an icy outdoor pool. Participants gathered sponsors for their courageous dip into the frigid, winter water! Proceeds went directly to local youth programming in Chestermere and SE Rocky View.
The Polar Bear Dip began in 2009 and was retired in 2015. Many residents still hold out hope that one day the event will return.
