Big Brrr!….the Evergreen Lake Plunge.
Take the Polar Plunge – If You Dare
At high noon on New Years Day at Evergreen Lake, snow or shine, you too can jump into the cool waters for a Polar Plunge! You’d be joining several local personalities, some more notorious than others, in their New Year’s Day bath in the icy Rocky Mountain waters. This event is a partnership with Drive Smart Evergreen/Conifer, Evergreen Fire/Rescue, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, and Evergreen Park and Rec District. This is event is a fund raiser for Drive Smart Evergreen/Conifer and the Evergreen Parks and Recreation District Special Needs Program. Tickets are $25 per person ($35 day of event). Anyone under 18 will need written parental permission (waiver). Waivers will be available December 1st.
A 10-foot by 10-foot area, six feet deep, will be cut out of the ice and equipped with platforms and ladders. Jeffco Sherrif’s Department’s Captain Ted Mink will supervise. People will be able to jump in ‘heats’ (no pun intended). What do you get for $25 you might ask? Well, you get bragging rights (priceless) and a commemorative event shirt. In addition, Caffe De Lucca is offering hot chocolate for everyone who comes in with their event shirt that day.
To chicken to jump? Kristina Halstead, who uses a wheelchair and has Cerebral Palsy will take the plunge for you along with her father, Bob Halstead, and friend Rod Schreiber. Kristina plunged last year and raised over $3,000 and was highlighted on Channel 4 news, with Alan Gionet. Mr Gionet will once again be the emcee and plunge also. You may also pledge for friends, co-workers etc.
