Several non-profit organizations in the Kapuskasing area will benefit from the 40 participants that will take the plunge tomorrow in the Rotary Club’s Bay Dip Challenge. The third annual event begins at noon and the easing of the COVID-19 health restrictions will allow an unlimited amount of spectators out to watch at the River Bay. You are asked to bring along a mask and respect physical distancing. Challenge organizer Don McInnis says one of the unique parts of the Dip are the costumes that participants wear.
“It brings so much excitement to it,” he said. “The fans love it and everyone gets into a party mode. We will have music playing. The costumes and the work that some people put in into the costumes is amazing and we will have two prizes for the best costume.”
McInnis says $30,000 was raised in each of the first two years, but this time around could be different.
“Because of the COVID situations, we have had in the last few months whatever we raise it’s all going to be for good causes and charities,” he said. “So please come out and support these jumpers they’ve worked hard to raise whatever money they could.”
