Plunge2Santa Cruz County Law Enforcement Torch Runners and Special Olympics Northern California are seeking plungers for the 2015 Santa Cruz Polar Plunge which will be held on February 28, 2015 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support local Special Olympics athletes by jumping or running into a chilly body of water in the middle of winter! The Polar Plunge is NOT a swim, it’s a party! For a minimum of $125 in donations, brave souls with warm hearts take a quick dig in chilly waters and then share bragging rights at a post plunge party.

Don’t want to dip, but still want to help? Register as a “chicken” and you’ll be excused from plunging, but probably not from a little friendly ridicule for those who will. Participants collect pledges on-line and set up their own personal fundraising page on our Polar Plunge website and then email family, friends and co-workers to support them right from the comfort of their living room.

Plunge3Costumes are encouraged. Awards presented to top fundraisers, best costumes and more. Individuals who raise a minimum of $125 will receive a Polar Plunge hooded sweatshirt and free admittance to the post plunge festivities. Additional incentive levels and rewards can be earned!

If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Henson at 925-944-8801 ext. 204 or [email protected]. Or contact Officer John Hohmann at 831-252-4187 or [email protected] See more at http://www.polarplungenorcalnv.com/santacruz/
