On Saturday, January 19, 2013 participants dressed in wacky costumes will plunge into the near-freezing waters of Resurrection Bay in Seward, Alaska. The event is part of a weekend long festival that includes silent auctions, turkey bowling, a carnival, seafood buffet, parade and much more!
Since 1986, the Polar Bear Jump-Off has been raising money for the American Cancer Society, aiding in the mission to eliminate cancer and create more birthdays. Pledges raised through the Polar Bear Jump-Off help provide cancer patients and their families with information and support, fund research that leads to improved treatments, educate the public about cancer prevention and early detection and help ensure that everyone has access to lifesaving cancer screenings.
Our goal is to create a world where more people survive cancer so they can celebrate another birthday. This year more than 11 million people will be able to do that thanks to the supporters of the Polar Bear Jump-Off.
