Brave swimmers take "Leprechaun Leap"

Posted:

While it may have been a bit warmer Saturday, compared to what we've had, it's still a bit too cold to be in water.

That's what some brave folks did Saturday afternoon for the Leprechaun Leap in Goshen!

It was all to help people in Elkhart County who are going through cancer treatment.

Peter Norton with United Cancer, says 300 to 400 people came out for the event, but not all of them made the leap.

"Crazy people who want to come and jump in cold water," says Executive Director of United Cancer, Peter Norton "but mostly the people who want to watch because there's many people who want to jump but far more want to watch.  "

Six-time Leaper Todd Donoho says, "Actually you're warmer when you get out than before you get in. You go numb so fast that you don't even realize it. "

This was the ninth year the event was held.
