Gail Ridings, owner of TallGrass Aveda Spa and Salon (Evergreen, CO) has issued a chilly challenge for her spa staff. If 10 team members sign up for the Evergreen Lake Plunge on New Year’s Day—an annual charity event where members raise money for Evergreen Parks and Rec District Special Needs/Special Olympics Program and Drive Smart—by leaping into the bitterly cold Evergreen Lake, she will jump into the Lake, too. The leave involves a dip into a 10′x10′ area, six feet deep, cut out of the ice and equipped with platforms and ladders.
A self-proclaimed “always cold” person, Ridings issued the challenge to kick off the spa’s Year of Change in 2010 program. “Change is good,” she says. “I believe businesses and organizations that rest on their laurels and get too complacent get lost in the crowd. TallGrass should always be ahead of the crowd.”
Here’s wishing Ridings and her team a license to chill!
