HIGHLAND, NY — On Saturday, February 8, the Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley Chapter will hold its 10th annual Subzero Heroes ice jump at Berean Lake. Check-in begins at 10:30 a.m. and the jumping starts at 12 noon.
The event will kick off with a Zumba warmup exercise led by an instructor from Gold’s Gym in LaGrange. Participants will have access to a variety of refreshments, and the event will also feature a costume contest. Heroes must raise a raise a minimum of $200 to take the plunge; they will jump into the lake to show their support for families living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
