Jump In The Lake Challenge

GO JUMP IN THE LAKE! - May 2, 2020

Balsam Lake residents Jennifer Bacon and Dean Michel have issued a challenge to their friends and neighbours in the Kawarthas. Take the plunge off your dock into whatever lake you're on and raise money for local charities.

“We recognized the need for funds in this time of increased demand at the Coboconk and Area Foodbank due to COVID-19,” Dean said. “I told Jennifer I would jump into the chilly waters of Balsam Lake if I got $500 in donations. I then challenged Jennifer to join me in the plunge if we reached $1,000 and now we're both preparing for it!”
