Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation welcomes all of Nelson’s swimmers and floaters, young and not so young, to take the plunge for health, personal pride, and appropriately, to raise money to support surgical services at our local hospital with the purchase of an Insufflator, camera system and three high definition monitors.
The quick dip into Kootenay Lake starts at noon on Jan. 1 at Lakeside Park, and will be preceded by hot chocolate and even hotter chili, which can be purchased by donation, at 11:30 a.m.
While the Foundation gladly provides the warm snack, in turn, they welcome the environmentally conscious. Please feel free to bring your favorite washable bowl, mug, and spoon.
Pledge forms for the Polar Bear Dip can be found at the front desk of Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, as well as at www.klhf.org.
Donations will also be accepted at the hospital and at Lakeside Park during the event.
Start the New Year with a splash. Bring your supporters. Make them pay.
