DON MILLS, ONTARIO, CANADA—The fifth annual Kiwanis Polar Bear Bathtub Race was the biggest yet, and a new champion entered the winner's circle.
The recent event raised $6,500 for the Canadian Diabetes Association, a total that far surpassed pledges from the previous year, said Garnet Hunt of the Kiwanis Club.
Loaves and Fishes Food Bank also reaped the benefits with a much-needed supply of peanut butter contributed by racers and spectators.
Aksel Schroeder took first place followed by Keaton Davies in second, Trevor Cannon in third and Steve Jenneson in fourth. TJ and Elijah Campbell gathered a record total of $805 in pledges. The Loyal Nanaimo Bathtub Society presented its coveted design trophy to racer Jordan Bowman, sister of two-time bathtub race champion, Kai Bowman.
