I’m a Polar Bear

Since Super Bowl Sunday, 1998, my city by the sea has been jumping into the Atlantic ocean for the Make a Wish Foundation.

This will be my second year braving the cold for a worthy cause, though I never truly understood the correlation between jumping into freezing water and charity. I have already purchased my polar bear hat and sweatshirt (a necessity) and I’m ready to bundle up in many layers- a bathing suit doesn’t cut it in February.

There is a wonderful feeling in the air, an energy, as you walk onto a packed beach on a cold day, snow stuck to the Jetties. We are all here together as a community for a reason, a charitable and worthy cause.

Would you become a polar bear?!
What would you do for charity?
