**Unfortunately, there are some things that are out of our control; this winter has been exceptionally cold and we feel like we have been attacked by snow and ice since December (hence, the image above). The Dutch Springs lake is completely frozen - this has only happened seven times in 34 years - and we are forced to reschedule the Polar Plunge. We are disappointed that we must reschedule, but Dutch Springs has ensured us that the water will actually be COLDER on the new date because of the freeze. The maximum surface temperature will be a balmy 34 degrees!
THE POLAR PLUNGE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM FEB 15TH TO APRIL 5TH, 2014.
Everything will remain the same, otherwise. Thanks for understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience!**

- The plunge will take place promptly at 12:00 p.m. If you are late, you may lose your opportunity to take the plunge.

regular plunger…minus the freezing cold water. With $75 in pledges, you will receive the “Plunge for a Purpose” t-shirt, and have the ability to cheer from the sidelines.
