Polar Bear Plunge- "The Brrrrr for the Bear"

  • February 18, 2017
  • 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
  • Black Bear Hole for plunge then Ax and Oar Restaurant

Seven years ago a man invited a few of his friends to jump in the St. Vrain River on New Years Day. That man was Josh Baranauskas. Josh was the original instigator of all of this fun we now call the Lyons Polar Bear Club. We've been plunging the St. Vrain ever since, and raising money for causes around the town of Lyons. This year Josh, The Bear, needs some love back from the community. Josh has been dealing with kidney failure and is waiting on a transplant. Please join us in supporting our cherished founder and help him and his wife Sarah through this tough time. As usual, we will be raising money online, and each plunger will be raising money to bring to the plunge. 

Donations of services, gift certificates or merchandise would be appreciated for a silent auction to take place at Axe and Oar after the plunge. Contact Jason Stillman if you have something to donate or want more info:

Cash donations also accepted.
