Collingwood – May 05, 2017 – The Collingwood G&M Hospital is fortunate to benefit from nearly $75,000 over 5 years in donations from the Meridian Polar Bear Dip. An incredible contribution raised independently by Meridian staff.
This year, the event drew dozens of dippers who, together with sponsors, raised over $16,000 for new surgical equipment and programs at the Collingwood G&M Hospital Foundation.
Over 40 brave souls plunged into the frigidly cold waters of Georgian Bay on March 29th in support of the cause. Collingwood G&M Hospital ER Nurse, Joslyn Mather was the grand prize winner of $750 which she generously donated back to the Hospital Foundation.
The Hospital Foundation would like to recognize Meridian Credit Union and thank the incredible group of sponsors who helped to make the event a success.
