Family day was first introduced in Ontario in 2008. Beyond another long-weekend to break up the looooooong winter, it’s a great way for a family to spend some much-needed time together. While my husband and I enjoyed this long weekend even before we became a family of three, we love it even more now that we can celebrate it with our little one.
I was recently told about a new and exciting event that will be taking place in Yonge-Dundas Square Toronto this upcoming Family Weekend (February 17th & 18th). The Sears Great Canadian Chill (www.TheChill.ca) is a nationwide series of Polar Bear Dips that will Stop Kids Cancer Cold! It’s mission is to raise money for kids cancer. Specifically in Toronto, the funds raised will go to support pediatric oncology research and treatment initiatives at the Hospital for Sick Children. This is such a great initiative that I just had to spread the word.
