If you still have some holiday spirit and goodwill to share, think about sharing it with 2nd graders in Nobles County. There is time to register for the 2013 Deep Freeze Dip.
All money raised from the Deep Freeze Dip goes to fund the Jami Cummings Learn to Swim Program.
On an August afternoon in 2011, a woman and her daughter would have lost their lives to Lake Okabena if it wasn't for Jami. Her heroic act saved two people, who couldn't swim, from drowning. The events of that day convinced Jami that she needed to do what she could to prevent that from happening again.
Since Jami started the JC Learn to Swim Program, hundreds of 2nd graders in Nobles County have received two weeks of free swimming lessons. The students learn the basic skills to help them be safe around the water. This program has been made possible because of funds raised by the Deep Freeze Dip.
The Deep Freeze Dip will be held during Worthington's Winterfest celebration, at 3:00 p.m., Saturday January 12th, 2013, on Lake Okabena. You must be at least 18 years old to jump. To register and pick up a pledge card, stop in at the Radio Works Headquarters, 28779 County Highway 35, in Worthington. You must raise a minimum of $250 to jump. Money pledges are due by Thursday January 10th at the Radio Works Headquarters.
So far, Jason Kellen, is the only registered jumper from Adrian. Help him represent the city of Adrian by registering and picking up a pledge card. If you are unable to jump, cheer him, and the other jumpers, on from sidelines as he takes a dip into the chilly waters of Lake Okabena for the JC Learn to Swim Program.
