Dozens of people will jump into the icy waters of Lake Michigan this weekend.
The 8th annual Da Yooper Plunge will take place January 27th at the Menominee Marina. Koreen Gardon, Program Director for the DAR Boys and Girls Club, says even if you’re not brave enough to take the plunge, there are other ways you can take part.
All proceeds from these events benefit the DAR Boys and Girls Club and River Cities Community Pool. Each event has its own minimum fundraising amount.
Da Yooper Plunge’s organizational committee has a goal of raising 50-thousand dollars this year. Registration can be completed in advance or the day of the event. Itineraries, competition rules, and registration forms can be found online at rivercitiespool.org.
