The 48th Olcott Polar Bear "Swim for Sight"
will be Sunday, March 5, 2017!


2016 Polar Bear Swim Fun

The Swim for Sight is similar to a walkathon, where swimmers raise contributions, participate in the Polar Bear Swim and receive a T-Shirt and other rewards based on various contribution levels.

We challenge participants to raise $100 or more, but the minimum swimmer contribution this year is $25. Most swimmers collect contributions from friends, family and acquaintances. Many get their workplace involved and co-workers help them raise funds in and outside the workplace.

Set up your personal fundraising page and register by going to FirstGiving.com. You can also use this website to download the registration form and submit your donation, or collect your donations and register when you arrive onsite March 6.

For more details, see our 2017 Swim for Sight page.

All swimmers must check-in onsite March 5. After you provide your contribution and receive your T-Shirt and other eligible rewards on the day of the swim at the Lions Pavilion in Olcott’s Krull Park - you can then follow the crowd to the swim beach.

Arrive early! Bring sneakers, towel and blanket, dry clothes, camera, your friends and a helper.

Warm Your Heart!
