May 2: #Jumpinthelake challenge

In mid-April 2020, Dean Michel issued a challenge to his local community: raise $500 for Coboconk and Area Food Bank and he would jump in Balsam Lake on May 2, 2020. When the goal was surpassed, he included Jennifer Bacon into the challenge and the goal was upped to $1000. Donations hit $3000 in a few days and kept coming so he extended the challenge to others in the community, leaving the charity of choice up the participants. A dozen families across six local lakes took part in the challenge, raising close to $15,000 for local charities. A date of May 1, 2021 has been set for the next #Jumpinalakechallenge.
