In 2020, local residents, Dean Michel & Jennifer Bacon, created a fun, if not chilly, campaign to raise funds and awareness in their community. The Jump In The Lake Challenge is an opportunity to build a healthy community together, while safely practicing social distancing.
Unlike other organized Polar Bear Dips, participants jump into the frigid early May waters from their docks or local piers. In three years our community has found creative ways to take the plunge, raising upwards of $125,000 for local charities.
Recognizing the very real problem of food insecurity, this year's fundraising will support the Coboconk and Area Food Bank.
