Who Are YOU Jumping For?

The Perth Polar Bear Plunge first started in 1994, when David Lavery, Stan Munro, and others at the Perth Legion hosted it as a fundraiser for Crimestoppers. Plungers line up along a cut-out along the Tay River shores and jump into the frigid water. The event quickly grew into one of the safest and most successful true Polar Bear Plunges in Canada and has become a popular must-attend event in Perth. Each year, the Polar Bear Plunge committee selects the charity of choice for the following year. Since its inception, the Polar Bear Plunge has helped raise more than $309,000 for a range of local organizations, including the Table, the Youth Action Kommittee and, now the Wheels of Hope program at the Canadian Cancer Society.
