Annual Polar Dip
I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for your support of the 26th Annual Polar Bear Dip to raise funds for River Hospital. This was my 12th year taking the icy plunge and with your generous contributions I was able to raise a total of $18,500.00 and exceed my goal!
A special thank you goes out to Critter and Donna, along with Skiffs and all the Celebrity Bartenders for their help with my fundraising. I couldn’t do this without all of your help.
My magic crown was in place, my wizardly beard was combed and awaiting my orders, I even had a few penguin friends along to help! I stepped to the edge of the dock, poised myself, uttered my command….and a thirty mile an hour gust of wind blew my Crown off, my beard parted and even those featherless birds deserted me! I had no choice but to jump into the water! I was blue, from head to toe! The frigid St. Lawrence defeated me yet again! I have begun planning for 2017, the year I will defeat the River!
Your support to River Hospital enables our community to offer state of the art medical services in the 1000 Islands, providing a safe harbor when needed most.
Once again, thank you for your support,
