 George Polar Bear Plunge 2018

The Polar Bear Plunge is an annual event where the Garden Route comes together to "Get Freezin for a reason". Once a year we cast off the comfort of warm clothing and run screaming into the painfully cold winter waters.

Why you ask?
We do this because we care. We do this to try and make South Africa a little better, by trying to help those less fortunate in our community.

Winter is a hard time of year and it’s easy to forget others struggling in the cold temperatures while we live in our cozy comforts.
The Polar Bear Plunge, in short, is a blanket drive on steroids! The community is urged to donate a blanket as an entry fee to the event and the swim, well that's to feel the cold that others feel.

In 2017, with your help, we collected over 700 blankets for those in need. That meant that 700 people were a little warmer during those freezing winter nights than in times before…This year we aim to collect over 1000 blankets!!! We need your help!

Come join the community of barely-clad citizens freezing their bits off with us for this great cause. Remember that all proceeds go to charities supporting those in need. Help us reach our goal of collecting 1000 blankets. is a product of Oakhurst (FSP39925)
