The women, many of whom work at Butties sandwich shop in Skelmanthorpe, decided to take the plunge when a colleague's mother died of the disease.
On of the organisers, Karen Pickersgill, said: "She and her brother decided they wanted to do something.
"They asked all their friends - and we did."
The group raised about pounds 2,000 for the Macmillan charity from their effort at Baitings reservoir, near Ripponden.
