Lake Gilman Polar Plunge

January 31, 2020 @ 12:00 am

Doors will open at 1:00pm for pre-frost bite party, with the Plunge “bell” ringing at 3:00pm!
It’s okay if you don’t want to jump into a frozen lake – instead come watch the craziness and help support our local recipients for this year’s fundraiser.

Recipients this year are: Harry Knorr and his family. Harry is fighting stage 4 lung cancer. Many costs associated with his treatment are not covered by insurance. When insurance can’t step up, the community steps in! Let’s help the Knorrs get through this!

As always, all recipients are local and in need of help. All donations are truly appreciated. And as always 100% goes directly to the recipients.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. Or better yet JUST JUMP IN!

Donations of whatever your heart & wallet will allow are greatly appreciated. In turn, you will be provided with food, drink, camaraderie and lots of entertainment. This event is catered by many of our local restaurants, but feel free to bring your favorite food or beverage.

GC EMS will be on premises (if you get too excited).

Costumes and Awards

For the extra silly ones, costumes are welcome (keep it clean, this is a family event). Awards are given for the following categories FIRST IN, BEST ENTRANCE, MOST TIMES IN, and YOUNGEST POLAR BEAR, BEST COSTUME. Invite anyone and everyone brave enough to take the plunge or with a generous heart!! If you can’t make it, we will miss you. If you feel inclined to donate please mail to address below.

A Note from Harry Knorr:

Hi, my name is Harry Knorr and I am 58 years old. I have resided in Mullica Hill my entire life. I have been married for 35 years to my wife Yvonne and have two beautiful and caring daughters, Jessica and Kristen.

Approximately 5 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare mutation of stage 4 lung cancer that metastasized to my brain. I was informed at that time I had about 1 year to live. 5 years later my oncologists at Fox Chase Cancer Center continue to aggressively treat my lung cancer. Treatments have included surgical procedures (including brain surgery), numerous chemo and radiation treatments, clinical trials and presently Immunotherapy.

Throughout this battle, we have received overwhelming support from our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers! This battle cannot be fought alone and the love and support of others has helped me to continue the fight. I will continue to fight this battle knowing I have an army behind me! Maybe one day there will be a cure!

Harry and Yvonne Knorr
