It’s a beautiful winter morning with the whole day ahead of you; 16 degrees above 0, light snow falling from the sky. Maybe it’s a good day to clean up the house, run some errands or hang out with friends – Or enjoy some winter activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow tubing or jump in a frozen lake….wait, what?! Yes, jump into a frozen lake to support a worthy cause! This weekend marks the end of FLake fest here in Forest Lake. Today’s event starts at 12pm on Forest Lake’s 1st lake by the beach. “Getting Cold For a Cause” is supported by The Rotary Club of Forest Lake, Minnesota. Jumpers join to rally for causes near and dear to their hearts – set a goal to raise money and donate the cold-hard cash in hopes in helping their organization!
If you’re not feeling bold, brave or daring enough to take the plunge, you can always donate to a team and support them and their cause! Please visit the following links for more information; or just stop on out and join the party and cheer these hardy Minnesotans on!
