Let's See the Mayor's Polar Bear!

Do you want to see Lloydminster Mayor Gerald Aalbers unleash his inner
Polar Bear and do a Splash?

Mayor Aalbers has challenged the citizens of Lloydminster to raise at least $10,000 for the Handivan Society. If we do, he will splash! You can easily donate directly through PayPal. All donations go to operations and subsidizing client costs. Donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.



Where can I drop off my pledge form and donations after the event?

You can drop off your pledge forms and donations at McCaw's Funeral Service 5101 50 St, Lloydminster, AB T9V 0M2. 

What do I need to bring to the event?

You'll need to bring your pledge and waiver forms to participate. If you have collected any pledge donations, you can bring them as well.

Splashers will need to be wearing soft soled, clean shoes to take a plunge (no high heels or bare feet). Change of clothes, towels and a warm ride home is recommended. Please download Participant Tips for a full list of things you might need. 

How can I get pledges?

Let your family, friends and co-workers know you are participating and that you'd appreciate their help. It's the kind of event that once they find out what you'll be doing, they will want to see you get Splashed!

You could also team up with your co-workers or employees and create a "Boss Challenge". If everyone raises  a specified amount ($100 minimum per Splasher), then the Boss has to Splash!

I don't know anyone who is Splashing, but would still like to donate. How can I do that?

We have a donation page for you to donate online through PayPal. You can donate from your PayPal account or with a credit card. Click here for the Donate page.
