Nelson Polar Bear Swim 2023

Thanks to YOUR support, together we raised $7,703 for your local lake and radio station!

That’s over triple the amount we raised last year. Way to go!

Thank you so much to everyone who plunged, donated, and came to cheer on the brave souls yesterday. We are so grateful for your support.

Your donation will be used to fund important stewardship and education projects on the lake including habitat restoration, wildlife and watershed monitoring, shoreline cleanups, and will help improve Kootenay Co-op Radio equipment and keep them on air! We can’t wait to share what kind of impact your donation will make this year!
