The annual Leprechaun Leap to benefit the Literacy Center of Milford will take place at Walnut Beach on Saturday, March 16.

Registration begins at 2:30 and the leap is at 3 p.m.

"Leapers" from around the city will collect donations from family members, co-workers and friends, and run, jump or dive into the icy cold waters at Walnut Beach.

Anyone with a little guts and a warm heart wanting to support The Literacy Center is welcome to participate.

Trophies will be awarded in several categories, including best costume, most enthusiastic, group theme, largest group of Leapers, most individual pledges, highest group pledges, first one in water and more.

Registration forms are available at the Literacy Center office at 16 Dixon Street or literacycenterofmilford.com. For information call 203-878-4800.

The event is sponsored by The Milford Bank.
