Great Lake Jumper Coming to Northern Michigan Saturday in Quest to Jump Into Every Great Lake
Chicagoan Dan O’Conor first jumped into Lake Michigan in June 2020 to beat a hangover, but it soon became a daily ritual to help manage the stress of the pandemic and the growing social unrest across the country.
He rose to online fame as the “Great Lake Jumper” last year after jumping into Lake Michigan for 365 consecutive days to help manage pandemic-driven stress, now expands his quest to leap into each of The Great Lakes.
He began posting his daily jumps to his Twitter account and soon went viral as thousands cheered him on – both online and in person – to reach his goal of jumping into the Lake for 365 consecutive days through rain, sleet and snow.
Now he has expanded his mission to jump into each of North America’s Great Lakes & beyond in order to spread hope & positivity to local music venues through NIVAssoc.org (National Independent Venue Organization)– and YOU can join him!
He is looking for everyone, including thrill seekers, cold water jumpers and adrenaline junkies of any kind.
It’s Saturday October 23,2021 at 7:45 AM EST (SUNRISE). It’s happening at the Presque Isle Harbor 5462 E. Grand Lake Road Presque Isle, MI 49777.
