What is the Polar Plunge?
How to Participate?
To participate, raise the $100 minimum and join us at Yards Park this March to take a dip in the pool. Each plunger receives the commemorative 2022 Polar Plunge t-shirt, and can receive other cool gifts for raising more. All COVID-19 protocols will be in place to keep everyone socially distanced and safe with plenty of hand sanitizer and masks for everyone to wear just before and just after the plunge. If you don’t to dip in the chlorinated pool, you can get sprayed with the hose. Participate today!
What to expect:
- Participants who raise a minimum of $100 will “take the plunge” into an ice cold above ground pool to get freezin’ for a reason!
- There’s also a Virtual Plunge option. Take a dip in the snow, a cold water shower or bath, the hose in the backyard or any creative and chilly method at your place. Post the video to raise funds to support our athletes
