Now in its 13th year, the Great Polar Bear Challenge is a fundraiser where brave individuals kick off the New Year by plunging into the icy waters of Lucky Peak on January 1st. This is a family friendly event where people of all ages jump, water ski, or wakeboard to raise funds for Idaho’s wish children. The event is free, however, all participants are asked to fundraise a minimum of $50. For every amount raised over $50 participants will receive a Polar Bear event shirt. Prizes are given to the top individual fundraisers in both the youth and adult categories.
