The Seward Polar Bear Jump Festival is a winter festival based in Seward, AK. Brave souls take the plunge into the icy waters of Resurrection Bay annually in an effort to raise money for charity. Funds raised by SPBJ go towards the Kenai Peninsula Children with Cancer Grant Program, which gives money to families that have children battling Cancer on the Kenai Peninsula here in Alaska.
