Lake Hopatcong Plunge Will Benefit Special Needs Kids

Fourth annual Leap in the Lake will be held Feb. 9 at Hopatcong State Park.

Those brave enough to face the freezing waters of Lake Hopatcong for the annual Leap in the Lake plunge Feb. 9 will do so to benefit special needs kids spending time at Camp Moore.

This is the fourth consecutive year the program has been hosted by the Lake Hopatcong Elks #782. According to nj.com, organizers are hoping to raise more than $50,000 during the plunge.

This year's event will kick off at 1 p.m. at Hopatcong State Park.

The Elks will also host a "Post Leap Party" from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elks lodge for $20 a ticket, although plunge participants will receive a complimentary ticket. Plungers will also receive a Leap in the Lake t-shirt.

Proceeds from the plunge will benefit the Lake Hopatcong Elks Special Children's Committee, as well as other youth programs.

For more information, visit the Elks' website.

What ever happened to the police not letting you on the ice? For this it is ok? Otherwise stay off. Make up your minds people.

This is a really fun event. The competition between area bars/restaurants adds to the fun and the kids really benefit!

A Cheryl Fodor, you can access the Hopatcong Elks webpage and the contact is there, call to register and you can download the sponsor forms. Due to this being so late, I would suggest calling the Lodge to ensure you get your registration in. Here is there website, hope it helps. http://lakehopatcongelks.com/leap.html
