Start off the New Year right with a brisk walk or run around beautiful Lake Padden. At the finish there will be snacks, patio heaters and lots of camaraderie before the dip. At high noon we will line up and jump in chilly Lake Padden. Heated showers and goodies will be ready for everyone exiting the water. We recommend parents with children under 10 consult a physician before entering the water.
There is no registration necessary for this FREE event. Just show up with enough time to write down your name, age and clip one safety pin.
