Brave the Icy Waters 

of the Lower Fox River

for the kids!

Join us for our annual River Shiver in which costume clad participants brave the Icy waters of the lower Fox River to raise money for Lurie Children's hospital (through One Small Voice Foundation)

Whether you're participating in the "Shiver" or just spectating, it's a great day to live the Oar Life and help a worthy cause!

The FREE pre-party with live entertainment in the HEATED Oar Tent starts at noon with the "Shiver" immediately following. Medals, trophies, and prizes for individuals and teams with best costumes and that raise the most money.

Spectator event pins for $5 donation required for entry.
