Evergreen Lake Plunge

The Evergreen Lake Plunge Scheduled for Sunday, February 12th has been cancelled

We have just been given the unfortunate news that due to poor ice conditions this Sunday’s Evergreen Lake Plunge fundraising event benefiting DRIVE SMART and EPRD Special Needs Program has been cancelled.

We are terribly disappointed for not being able to host this time-honored event for our community, plungers and spectators. As always, safety of our participants is a priority.

DRIVE SMART is grateful for our sponsors, partners and community for their continued support of our events and programs.

If you’ve already signed up to Plunge or Pledged a Plunger you can:

  • Donate the cost of your ticket or pledge to DRIVE SMART’s programs
  • Contact DRIVE SMART via email for a refund at admin@drive-smart.org

The cancellation of this event not only creates a loss of this unique Plunge experience, it creates the loss of proceeds which would benefit both DRIVE SMART and EPRD Special Needs programs.

Colorado GivesPlease consider donating via our Colorado Gives account to these organizations to help offset the major loss and to keep their community programs strong.


The Evergreen Lake Plunge was the biggest ever in 2016! Read the Canyon Courier article about the event.
