Winter arrived in all its glory last week, and it may be hard to imagine being in a bathing suit at one of our Toronto beaches these days.

But that is exactly what some Torontonians will be wearing on January 1 at Sunnyside Beach.

The annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip tradition returns in support of Habitat for Humanity.

Since 2005, the Toronto Polar Bear Club has raised almost $370,000 – funds that have gone directly to build projects in the Greater Toronto Area.

If you’re looking to take part in a chilly dip for a good cause, there’s still time. Register and sign up online, and get ready to try this rare hangover cure.

And of course, you’ll get to check it off your bucket list.
