What is Brainfreeze?

Brainfreeze is a polar bear dip for youth mental health. 

Brainfreeze 2019 was an epic, bone-chilling blast. In Halifax, Collingwood, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria, courageous polar bears stripped down to their skivvies and proved that arctic temperatures can’t stop them from making a splash for youth mental health. 

All told, we raised a mind-blowing $150,000 for programs that will help young people all over the country, surpassing our fundraising goal by 50 per cent. 6 cities. 550 participants. 2,802 individual donors. That’s something that’ll keep us warm and cozy until Brainfreeze 2020.
