Will you be jumping in the lake this year, or do you want to come cheer people on? Thanks to BC Ambulance Service and Nelson Search and Rescue for committing to being on the scene. And Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society for signing up to help out.
Please remember to bring a donation, to help ensure this event can continue in years to come.
Warm chili or hot chocolate served at 11:30am. Plunge at noon! Tropical music supplied by KCR’s very own Pineapple Man.
If you have a heart problem – just watch!
Children must swim and stay with an adult.
Please leave your dog at home.
Do not drink – alcohol does not warm you up – it accelerates hypothermia.
Do not stay in the water longer than 15 minutes. Body heat is lost 25 times faster in water than in air.
Do not remove your clothing until swim time. The swim will be started by a siren.
