Polar Plunge 2024

The annual Royal Canadian Geographical Society Polar Plunge is back!

This year we are joined by notable Canadians, adventurers, and RCGS Fellows. The #RCGSPolarPlunge will help the Society raise important funding for the rich storytelling and engaging interviews that take place under the banner of the Canadian Geographic Explore podcast.

Our goal is to raise $35,000! With your help we can continue to expand Canadians’ knowledge of our country’s diverse human and physical landscapes, better preparing them for an uncharted future.

Support the 2024 RCGS Polar Plunge!

Prepping for the plunge!!

Friday 1st Mar
It’s time to plunge to fundraise for the Explorer’s podcast and RCGS. This year I’m in Kugluktuk on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. It’s -33C and the sea ice is over 3.5 feet thick. There is work afoot in the community to carve out an ice bathtub in the sea ice 30” thick and auger a hole to the ocean beneath to bring up the water. After all that I better be ready to jump in!! 

Thank you to my Sponsors
