The Story

EVENT DATE: Feb 18, 2017

Start your new year off FREEZIN' FOR A REASON by taking the PLUNGE to alleviate senior hunger and isolation!  The 9th annual Polar Bear Plunge is a family-friendly event hosted each year at the Asheville Racquet Club South and features around 30 costumed jumpers taking the icy cold plunge from the diving board into the outdoor pool - all to support the 500 homebound seniors who depend on Meals on Wheels for a warm meal and friendly visit.  Get started by creating your fundraising page, determine your costume, and ask family, friends, business associates and others to support your Plunge!  We only have a few rules to follow:  Raise a minimum of $300 which is the cost to feed a senior for 2 months...and be 16 years of age or older.  DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN THE TITLE OF "TOP POLAR BEAR?"  Click on the "Set up Your Fundraiser" button located up above and get started!
