On Saturday December 9th, the Jonesport-Beals High School JMG program hosted a Polar Plunge at Sandy River Beach in Jonesport. Students, parents, siblings, and community members were sponsored to jump into the freezing cold water for 30 seconds. Sponsorships were $10 each and and all proceeds went towards the “Let’s All Have A Merrier Christmas!” Foundation. The results were quite successful!
The event raised $935 in total and 14 students and community members showed up to jump into the cold ocean. No one got hurt, and no one has gotten hypothermia, as of yet, so it’s fair to say that this event was a success!
