Video: why take part?
The Polar Bear Swim is happening on Saturday, January 1st at Lakeside Park Beach in Nelson at noon. Join hundreds of brave plungers who are fundraising to support the work of two local non-profit organizations: Kootenay Coop Radio and Friends of Kootenay Lake. All the money from this event will power your local radio and support important stewardship projects on the lake.
