We are seeking as many valiant souls as possible to brave the frigid waters of the Aquatics Center and help raise money for our premier education event, Kids in the Creek, one that teachers call “extremely valuable for teaching about water quality” and students call “cool”. We’ll save you the long details but we do have data that demonstrate Kids in the Creek is a very effective tool for increasing knowledge about water and bringing out environmentally-responsible behaviors in the kids.
Come join us so you can say you plunged in the Champion Credit Union Aquatics pool in the middle of winter. Plungers don’t technically have to “plunge”, a simple dip of the toe is acceptable, though your peers may think otherwise. All Plungers will receive a FREE t-shirt to commemorate their courage and support of clean water.
All ages welcome, though kids will need their parent’s to sign the Waiver Form. Shirt and shoes are mandatory. Costumes are also encouraged and the top three Best Costumes will walk away with fabulous prize packages.
The cost is $25 or FREE by raising sponsorships ($10 for under age 18). Register online in two easy steps:
1. Visit here and click “Join”.
2. GoFundMe Charity will create your own personal page under the Plunge. Then, either “Donate” your $25/$10, or send the personal link to family, friends, and coworkers so they can support your registration ($1, $5, $25, everything counts). The top three Individual, School Team, and Community Team fundraisers will win fabulous prize packages. Plus, any Plunger that raises $100 or more gets a FREE lunch!
You can also register by mail via the Sponsorship and Registration Packet; or simply Walk-In the day of the event. Cash also counts towards the top fundraiser awards.
Base Camp on the Go will bring their truck fully-loaded with outdoor fun for the kids. There will be several food trucks on site. Bonfires will also be raging to help folks warm up as well as indoor changing and eating facilities. Since it is a winter Plunge, the event will happen rain or shine!
