On March 1st, 2015 the 15th Annual Polar Bear Plunge will commence. Last year more than 3,000 people jumped in Lake Michigan for the Polar Bear Plunge. Participants have the option to go knee high, waist high or even take the full plunge. The event has no registration fee; however participants are required to raise a minimum of $75 on their fundraiser page. Participants will receive a link which they can send around to family and friends so that they can make secure online donations. In 2014, more than $2.1 million was raised by more than 7,300 plungers.
