OTTAWA, Dec. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - This New Year's Day brave Chillers will jump 
into the icy cold waters of the Ottawa River at Britannia Beach to raise money 
for the fight against childhood cancer. Proceeds raised from The Chill will be 
collected by the Sears Canada Charitable Foundation and will be evenly 
allocated between patient support at the Children's Hospital of Eastern 
Ontario (CHEO), which includes programs and research in the hospital's 
Oncology Department, and national pediatric oncology research initiatives, 
such as the Sears Childhood Cancer Fellowship. 
"Sears dedication to the fight against childhood cancer is evident through 
events such as the Sears Great Canadian Chill," said Cheryl Hammond, Vice 
President, Development and Corporate Relations, CHEO Foundation. "The monies 
raised by the participants allows CHEO to continually provide the best care to 
our patients and their families." 
The 4(th) annual Chill brings participants together to celebrate the New Year 
by rushing into the icy waters of the Ottawa River. In addition to the 
traditional polar bear dip, The Chill includes family fun activities, live 
entertainment, prizes for the top fundraisers and a costume contest. 
"The Sears Great Canadian Chill is an invigorating way to kick off the New 
Year," said Doug Campbell, President and CEO, Sears Canada Inc. "It is very 
rewarding to see so many people raise money, dress up in costume and brave the 
cold waters in support of the fight against childhood cancer, helping children 
and their families, many of whom are Sears customers and associates."
