Paddle Plunge Event Set for April 10

Apr 10, 2021

Each year, the Paddle Plunge raises funds to send children to camp who otherwise couldn't afford it. The annual Paddle Plunge event benefits the Southern District YMCA Annual Campaign. The Annual Fund supports scholarships for campers, school age child care, and wellness so no one is ever turned away for an inability to pay. Join us Saturday, April 10 from 10-12 at YMCA Camp Lincoln!

This year's event is sponsored by Lexie's Burger Bus. Everyone who jumps in the lake will receive a free Lexie's burger. If you're not jumping in, food will be available for purchase.
