The Great Polar Bear Challenge

Swimmers in the frigid January water at Spring Shores Marina

Talk about jumping into a good cause! These folks are shedding their winter gear and taking the Great Polar Bear Challenge to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They run into the water at Spring Shores marina at Lucky Peak Reservoir and run right out again. Others are brave, or crazy, enough to water ski. The Great Polar Bear Challenge takes place each year on New Year’s Day.
