Polar Plunge

Thanks to the hundreds of people who participated, we had an INCRDIBLE Polar Plunge season in 2023, raising more than $456,000. Louisville led the way with $207, 000 raised, but all five of our events greatly exceeded their goals. Thank you to all of the participants and donors who helped make that possible.

Look for the schedule for our 2024 Polar Plunges in October. We will once again hold AT LEAST five Plunges.

All you have to do to take part in a Plunge near you is raise or donate a minimum of $75 to participate ($50 for Junior Plungers under 18 years old)

  • Everyone earns an event T-shirt.
  • Additional prizes awarded at $300 and $1,000 fundraising milestones (prizes awarded differ at our Greater Cincinnati Plunge – be sure to check the website for more details)
  • Get your friends and family involved!
  • Costumes are encouraged! The “Golden Plunger” Award is given to the best individual and team costumes!
