The annual Polar Bear Splash draws hundreds of spectators, who watch the out-of-season swimmers leap into the frigid channel waters between Upper Nemahbin Lake and Lower Nemahbin Lake. All money raised by pledges, raffle items, sponsorships, direct donations and T-shirt sales is donated to Children’s Hospital and Health System Foundation.
“We’re proud to add the Polar Bear Splash to the many events that Grounds Maintenance Services supports,” said Todd Ruedt (http://groundsmaintenancewi.com/
