BENEFITING: Haywood Waterways Association Inc

EVENT DATE: Feb 04, 2017

THE STORY:

Haywood Waterways and Lake Junaluska Assembly are hosting the "5th Annual Polar Plunge Benefit-t-t-ting Kids in the Creek and Environmental Education" on "Super Bowl" Saturday, February 4, 2017. The Plunge will be at the Lake Junaluska Assembly beach (11 Memory Lane, Lake Junaluska, by the pool); registration begins at 10:00 am and festivities start at 11:30.

There will be great prizes for the top 3: Individual Fundraisers, School Team Fundraisers, Community Team Fundraisers, and Best Costumes. 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 are 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 teachers call “extremely valuable for teaching about water quality” and 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 increasing knowledge about water and bringing out environmentally-responsible behaviors in the kids.

Come join us so you can say you plunged in Lake Junaluska in the middle of winter. The depth of plunge is a personal choice - from a dip of the toe 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 ($10 for under age 18). Register by "Joining the Team" here on Crowdrise, then "Donate" your $25/$10 (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.

Want to support the cause off-line? Contact Haywood Waterways for a paper copy of the "Sponsorship, Donation, and Registration Packet" (828-476-4667, info@haywoodwaterways.org).

The Assembly will have bonfires 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!
