Are You Ready to "Leap in the Lake" This Saturday? Glencoe Beach in Glencoe

Are You Ready to "Leap in the Lake" This Saturday
Glencoe Beach, Glencoe, Il

Glencoe and other North Shore residents know that we have had a mild winter thus far - and Are You Ready to "Leap in the Lake" - Glencoethat is why jumping into Lake Michigan might not seem so frightening as it normally would. Alas, a new winter storm arrived today and left about an inch of mushy white stuff.  

Will this deter you from joining in Glencoe's Leap in the Lake this Saturday, February 25 at the Glencoe Beach (one of many events that Glencoe is hosting this year to celebrate their 100 year history.).   Find out just how cold Lake Michigan's water really is (hey, I don't go into the water in the summer because I think it's too cold!)

After your quick dip, you will be able to go into a warming area and enjoy hot chocolate or coffee.  Emergency medical personnel and divers will be on hand to assist, and all participants must sign waivers to participate.  

If you are between 10 and 17 years of age, the cost to participate is $20, and over 18 is $25. Why would someone pay to literally freeze their bodies for a few minutes?  It's all for a good cause - all monies will be donated to C.A.R.E., a scholarship fund for Glencoe residents in need of financial assitance. Plus, you get a cozy tee-shirt that will proclaim your bravery with the slogan "I Survived the Leap in the Lake." 

And no, I won't be dipping a toe in that water, let alone my body.  But I hope you do.

Glencoe Beach (east end of Park Avenue.)
Saturday, February 25
