#Toronto Chills at the Square

Sears @GrtCdnChill has moved from the frigid waters of Lake Ontario on New Years Day to a temporary pool in Yonge-Dundas Square during the Family Day weekend. Starting on Sunday, February 17 and continuing till Monday, January 18, 2013 the place is a chance to get a tan while catching rays, hang out in bathing suits and cool off in the pool. The first dip took place on Sunday around 2:30 pm when Chris jumped in the water and emerged victorious in a spray of cold water.
"Stop Kids Cancer Cold! Funds raised benefit pediatric oncology initiatives through Sears Canada Charitable Foundation. If you aren't up for the Chilly Challenge, you are still welcome to join in the festivities and take part in the weekend's exciting free activities! There are 2 days to Chill so don't miss out on the action!"
