Polar Bear swim attracts over 175 to Humphreys
The conditions were just right for Humphreys’ 2nd annual Polar Bear swim here Jan. 9 – 31 degree water, 25 degree outdoor temperature and over 175 people anxious to plunge into the frigid water at Splish and Splash Water Park.
Several mission units assigned to Humphreys and even Soldiers from as far away as Camp Casey participated in the year’s Family & Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored event.
Fire and Emergency crews monitored the swimmers during the event and heaters and hot chocolate were on hand to help warm up them when they were finished.
FMWR awarded swimmers with a Polar Bear Swim sweatshirt for completing the event.
