2022 One Dollar Difference GEORGIA CHAPTER

GTA Polar Bear Run Challenge for ALS

The Georgia Triumph Association (www.gatriumph.com) was founded in 1974 with over 180 current members. Its purpose is to foster fellowship among owners of Triumph vehicles though owning a Triumph is not a requirement for club membership. The GTA conducts drives, picnics, holiday parties, tech sessions, monthly meetings, fund raisers and car shows to further the goals of the association.

The Georgia Triumph Association’s first Polar Bear Run was in 2000. Held the last Saturday of the year, this event is open to all car clubs and individuals with the intent to celebrate the end of the old year and the emergence of a New Year. Like Polar Bear year-end events held elsewhere, the challenge is to make a top-down run rather than jumping into a freezing lake.

In 2014, one of our members, Earl Ferguson, lost his wife Susan to ALS.  Aware of Susan's illness, the GTA started collecting donations in 2013 for the ALS Foundation during the kick-off meeting before the Polar Bear Runs began. This was an informal process but Earl forged a relationship with the ALS Foundation over the years. For our 2022 23rd Polar Bear Run held on Saturday December 31, 2022, the club decided to adopt the ALS Foundation as our centerpiece charitable cause. As a result, we have partnered with the Georgia Chapter of the ALS Foundation and established this website to collect donations and to challenge other Atlanta area car clubs to join us as fundraisers in achieving our annual goals. Together, let’s make a difference-one dollar at a time!
