Polar Bear News
Along with our Winning Hearts Benefit Auction, we've been sort of at a loss for "how" and "if" to move forward on our plans for our 14th annual "Freezin' for a Reason" Polar Bear Plunge.
Each year, we've headed to North Avenue Beach in Chicago for our New Year's Day swim, primarily because we didn't want to deal with dangerous shelf ice that may be present at the Indiana beaches, and also because our friend Tobin has opened her establishment each New Year's morning for the past 13 years to allow us to make a few toasts and thaw out a bit.
Right now, we intend to move forward with the Polar Bear this year. We're not sure if it will resemble past polar bears or not. And, we're not sure how well participation will go this year as well. But, sometime between now and Halloween, look for an additional message to come out with all of the details (at least all of the details we have at that time).
I hope to see you in the water New Year's morning! There's absolutely no better way to start the year!
