Yup, they did it.

The conservative approach


In spite of dropping temperatures, impending snow, and possible hypothermia, LFP Rotary members and friends took the plunge for charity in the first ever Rotary Polar Bear Dip.

The jump right in approach


On Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 2pm the intrepid few ran into the cold waters of Lake Washington. A few went for full immersion and jumped off the dock at the Sheridan Community Center.

The expression says it all


Happily, after a brief time in the invigorating waters, all returned safely to shore.

The KCSO Marine rescue unit was there to make sure
that everyone returned to shore


Now they will collect the pledges from friends, family, and co-workers and donate the funds to the EndPolioNow.org project.

Volunteers on land


The fight to end polio is led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), which includes Rotary, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and governments of the world, with the support of many others around the globe.
