11th Annual Polar Bear Plunge Set for January 1, 2013
Start the new year off right with a bracing swim in Lake Washington!
Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Meadowbrook Community Center Advisory Council are co-sponsoring the 11th Annual Polar Bear Swim at high noon on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at Matthews Beach, 9300 51st Ave. NE. Registration starts at 11 a.m. and the Plunge starts at noon sharp.
There will be refreshments and a 2013 Official Patch of Courage for all heroic polar bears who immerse themselves neck-deep in the lake, to prove to friends and loved ones they actually braved the frigid waters, which today were a bracing 48 degrees Fahrenheit.
