Off to a GREAT start!

The Portland Polar Plunge is off to a great start! There are 379 brave souls registered for the 2014 polar plunge and they have already raised over $18,000!

Of those 379 plungers, 51 of them are running in our first annual 5K Run/Walk that will take place the morning of the plunge.

Of course we can still use your help to get us to our goal of 2,500 plunger and $350,000!  You can join this group of eager plungers by clicking the link below and registering to TAKE THE PLUNGE!

If you’re afraid of a little cold water, you can still participate in plunge day activities by signing up for the “Too Chicken to plunge”. Activities include a photo booth, lots of yummy food, and other fun carnival things!
