In recent weeks, all around the world, we have seen the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the Bring on the Bay Open Water Swim for Easter Seals has grown and expanded over the years, we have always prioritized the safety of our swimmers and volunteers. As a result of the City of Ottawa facility closures, limitations and other logistical uncertainties, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Bring on the Bay Open Water Swim for Easter Seals. We must always put the health and safety of our volunteers, participants and supporters first and we believe this to be the most responsible decision for all.
Everyone involved with Bring on the Bay is a volunteer and over the years, the event has been a major fundraiser for Easter Seals Ontario in the Ottawa Area. Thank you to all of you, to all of our volunteers and to our sponsors.
Easter Seals Ontario relies completely on the generosity of donors and sponsors to continue to maintain services for the children and families who depend on them and they could really use your help right now. If you are able, we would be extremely grateful for your continued involvement in the Bring on the Bay Open Water Swim for Easter Seals.

In the meantime, we are keeping you and all of our supporters, participants and volunteers in our thoughts during these challenging times, and please know how much we appreciate any support you can provide to Easter Seals Ontario as we navigate through the COVID-19 crisis.
