Polar bear swim on Saturday

Jan. 11, 2011 - 17:44 By Paul Kerry
A polar bear swim to raise money for the Asian Community School in Busan will take place Saturday at Haeundae Beach from 2-5 p.m.

Participants should meet at the Wolfhound Irish Pub in Haeundae. They may leave their belongings at the bar before taking a dip in the ocean.

Donations of 10,000 won are recommended, and will be collected at the pub. All proceeds from the event will go toward supplies for the Asian Community School, which educates and assists the children of migrant workers.

Those with heart conditions are advised not to take part in the swim, and participants should avoid drinking beforehand.
