Update: This event was just cancelled because of more warm weather.
Our original story: Warm weather ruined the New Year's weekend Evergreen Lake Plunge, forcing the nonprofit Drive Smart and the Evergreen Park & Recreation District to reschedule its annual fundraiser. Assuming the weather is cold enough, the Plunge is now set for Saturday, February 12.
The annual event gives daredevils a chance to leap from the ice into the frigid waters of Evergreen Lake, inducing goosebumps, shivers and a sense of panicked euphoria.
Want to suffer? You're gonna pay — even before you jump in. Registration is $35 in advance and $45 on the day of the plunge, starting at 10:30 a.m. Don't want to suffer? Sponsor a friend. Proceeds from the event will benefit Drive Smart, as well as the Park & Recreation Department's special-needs program.
