MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A special fund raiser for hardy souls is this Saturday at Marquette’s South Beach. It’s a chance to show your warm heart by jumping into cold Lake Superior water.
Pamela Carlson, organizer of “Freezin’ For A Reason”, a fund raiser for Leslie Seratti, who is currently battling ovarian cancer, joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike to preview the event.
The event is a Polar Plunge-styled event featuring jumping in Lake Superior in Marquette at South Beach this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Entrants can register for $25.00 starting at 3:00 p.m. that afternoon.
