The NORTHWOODS ORIGINAL POLAR BEAR PLUNGE has grown and evolved since its beginning in 2000. Radio personalities at WRJO in Eagle River Mike Wolf and Amy Linnett, along with Eric Schoeneck and Dick Lemke host a 30-hour Pledge-a-Thon prior to the plunge on WRJO Radio. This “red-eye” event has raised awareness of our programs as well as an incredible amount in pledges.
This year we hope to hit our mark of $500,000 donations to date for Angel On My Shoulder. This money benefits our camps: Camp Angel, Camp Teen Angel, Angel Adventures and Angel Adventures Extreme, along with providing support for our other programs.
