At least there wasn’t ice on the water
For several years, students at The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville have hosted a polar plunge to raise money for the Jane Lloyd Fund, which supports area residents who have cancer with their daily living expenses. Last year, COVID-19 forced the students to plunge remotely, all over the world.
This year, back on campus, they devised a COVID-safe system for plunging, approved by the school’s medical team.
Sunday, April 11, was cold, gray and windy but, for almost two straight hours, close to 200 students plunged in the frigid water of Lake Wononscopomuc in Salisbury to raise more than $1,500 for the Jane Lloyd Fund.
