Evergreen Lake Plunge

9th Annual Evergreen Lake Plunge 2017

Take the PLUNGE – If You Dare!

When you registered as a Lake Plunger, you received a custom link that you could send to your family and fiends so they may help you achieve your fundraising goal – set your goal high! You have until January 10th to use that link.

The Evergreen Lake Plunge was the biggest ever in 2016! Read the Canyon Courier article about the event.


Drive Smart IceFest - Plunge Bear

At high noon on New Year’s Day at Evergreen Lake, snow or shine, you too can jump into the inviting waters for a winter plunge! You’d be joining several local personalities, some more notorious than others, in their New Year’s Day bath in the icy Rocky Mountain waters.

This event is a partnership with Drive Smart, Evergreen Fire/Rescue, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, and Evergreen Park & Recreation District. This event is a fund raiser for Drive Smart and the Evergreen Park & Recreation District Special Needs Program.

A 10-foot by 10-foot area, four to five feet deep, will be cut out of the ice and equipped with a platform, ladder and Evergreen Fire Department water rescue personnel to ensure everyone’s safety.

Registration is $35 in advance, $45 at the door and can be purchased online.
