About 20 jumpers are expected at the Polar Pig Splash set for today, said Don Wegner, organizer.
The “Walk the Plank” Polar Pig Splash is set for 10:30 a.m. today. Proceeds from the event benefit the Jamestown Hospital Hospice program. Hospice provides end-of-life care for people who doctors say have less than 6 months to live.
Those who raise at least $100 can take the plunge — jumping into a pirate ship shaped pool of water located at Stutsman Harley Davidson. Many jumpers dress in costumes including hooks for hands and pegged legs.
Last year, the Polar Pig Splash raised $10,000.
