230 Take To The Water In Polar Bear Jump ’17

Mercury In Mid ’50s

For 230 ‘Polar Bears’

For the first time in a long time, the water was colder than the air at the 21st annual Polar Bear Jump at Goodyear Lake this afternoon. Under the watchful eyes of the state police Troop C Dive Team, over 230 jumpers braved icy water to help raise money to help ten local recipients . Above, event organizer Brenda Waters, Milford, and Jay Murphy, Oneonta, call the jumpers out onto the ice to line up before taking the plunge.  Left, Christopher Vun swims as fast as he can towards the ladder out of the lake.
