Ellen's Icebreaker for Cancer Research
Saturday, March 8, 2014
The 2nd Annual Ellen's Icebreaker for Cancer Research will be held Saturday, March 8, 11 a.m., at Nagawicka Lake in Hartland.
The post-plunge celebration will follow at noon at the Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee. Admission to the celebration is $15, which features lunch, beverages and live music. Donations to cancer research are suggested for participation in the plunge, with no minimum donation required.
This "polar plunge" event is held in memory of Ellen Smith, a beloved Froedtert Hospital employee who died of gastric cancer last fall at the age of 59.
People who do not want to brave the elements can participate by donating in support of someone making the plunge.
Proceeds from the event support the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center. The first polar plunge was held last year, when Ellen Smith was still undergoing treatment for cancer. Since then, friends and family members have donated nearly $40,000 to cancer research at MCW.
