BENEFITING: Haywood Waterways Association Inc

EVENT DATE: Jan 31, 2015

THE STORY:

Haywood Waterways and Lake Junaluska Assembly are hosting the "3rd Annual Polar Plunge Benefit-t-t-ting Kids in the Creek and Youth Education" on "Super Bowl" Saturday, January 31, 2015. The event will be at the Lake Junaluska Assembly beach (by the pool); registration begins at 11:00 am and festivities start at 11:30. There will be great prizes for:

  • Top 3 Individual Fundraisers
  • Top School Team Fundraiser
  • Top Community Team Fundraiser
  • Best Costume (Top 3)

All Plungers receive a FREE t-shirt to commemorate their courage. All Plungers and spectators get a FREE lunch and a chance to win one of many great door prizes.

We’re seeking as many valiant souls as possible to brave the frigid waters of Lake Junaluska and help raise money for our premier education event, one that the teachers call “extremely valuable for teaching about water quality” and the students call “cool”. We’ll save you the long details but we do have data that demonstrate Kids in the Creek is a very effective tool for bringing out environmentally-responsible behaviors in the kids.

Come join us just so you can say you plunged into Lake Junaluska in the middle of winter. The depth of plunge is a personal choice - from a wade up to the ankles to a full immersion jump off the dock.

All ages welcome, though kids should definitely get parent’s permission (parents are going to have to sign the liability waiver anyway). Shorts and shoes are mandatory, costumes are encouraged.

The cost is $25 or FREE by raising sponsorships. Register by "Joining the Team" here on Crowdrise, then "Donate" your $25 (all donations are tax deductible), or better yet, send the link to all your family, friends, coworkers, and anyone else you can think of to sponsor you ($1, $5, $25, everything counts) and have a chance for one of the top fundraiser prizes. The Assembly will have a bonfire going to help folks warm up as well as indoor changing and eating facilities. Since it is a "Polar" Plunge, the event will happen rain or shine! Want a paper copy of all this or more info? Contact Haywood Waterways at 828-476-4667 or info@haywoodwaterways.org.
