Polar Bear Plunge

On January 28th, 2012, a brave ChaseDesign LLC team plunged into Skaneateles Lake for charity. Billed as “Shock and Thaw” and carrying roses for a soon-to-be-wed co-worker, the team was part of the Polar Bear Plunge that raised $6,600 for charity.

The lake was not frozen over as in past years, but wind and water temperatures in the thirties, plus a stiff wind and choppy waves, provided suitably bracing conditions. For some team members, it was a once in a lifetime experience; others are already committed to next year’s plunge.
