Go ahead, start the new year with a gym membership you know you'll use all of nine times before your "get-in-shape" resolution falls to the wayside. Or join the brave few (hundred) who will begin the first day of 2015 by jumping into Lucky Peak Reservoir for the Great Polar Bear Challenge.

Now in its 11th year, the challenge helps Make-a-Wish Foundation reach its goal of $75,000, used to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The Idaho chapter grants up to 90 wishes every year. It's free for participants to charge into the frigid waters at the Spring Shores Marina, but the foundation encourages each studly swimmer to raise at least $50 (to receive a complimentary T-shirt).
