Check in: from 10:00 am
Event: 11:00 am
Sandy Bay, Tas.
What could be more fun, and show to the world how much your chosen cause means, than to take a mid-winter paddle or dip into the Derwent River?
Freezin for a Reason gives everyone participating the chance to raise money for the Lions Club of Hobart Town and your chosen charity, cause or club.
That's right. You nominate an organisation or cause you are raising money for in this event and they partner with the Lions Club.
70% of the amount you raise goes to your nominated organisation and the balance supports Lions projects.
We reckon it is the coolest event of the year.
Wear your swimmers, get into fancy dress or your pajamas, dinner suit, evening dress, work uniform, your onesie or whatever you choose.
This adds some colour and a lot of fun to the event.
It's up to each person taking part whether to just dip their ankles, take a minute to splash around, dive like a penguin or swim a few strokes.
However you do it, it's the coolest thing you'll do all year - not to mention you'll be raising money to help the charity or club that you nominate along with the very valuable projects supported by the Lions Club.
Whether you are doing the event individually or as part of a team, you must be registered to take part on the day
Don't miss out on raising some extra funds.
All you need to do is let your supporters or members know about the event and encourage them to get involved.
Email your supporters and put the event on your social media sites and web page and ask people to nominate your organisation when they register.
Another option is to get a team together and encourage each other. You have a lot to gain and nothing to lose.
