I let the Alzheimer's Association of Colorado run the event for a fundraiser after I moved to California. After a few years they let the event go to the Boulder County AIDS Project, which has hosted the New Year's Day Ice Swim as a fundraiser in 2014 and 2015.
The event is now hosted by the American Cancer Society for cancer awareness and fundraising.
