4th Annual Viki Downey Polar Bear Splash
A Fundraising Event for Lake Chelan Swim
We are looking for a gathering of brave souls to jump in Lake Chelan to finish off the weekend of Winterfest!
Check in and get ready to plunge in the lake, turn in any cash donations and have a group photo taken at 12:30. Wait for the official count down, then follow Mrs. Viki into Lake Chelan at 1:00 before returning to shore where you will receive an “I survived the Polar Bear Swim” wristband, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, or coffee, then huddle around the bonfire to warm up.
Challenge your friends to make a donation to Lake Chelan Swim in your name! Donations can be made online, mailed to Lake Chelan Swim at P.O. Box 159 Chelan, WA 98816 or in person on the day of the plunge. All donations go directly to fund free swim lessons to hundreds of kids in the Lake Chelan Valley every year.
Jeff Conwell said he will do the plunge again this year but has increased his ask to $10,000 in collective donations in his name!
