Take the Plunge!



You’ve registered, you’ve fundraised, now it’s time to Plunge!

Take the Plunge between February 12th and February 13th!   You will receive a Survival Pack that contains everything you need for your DIY Plunge: a party pack, snack pack, and any incentives that you’ve earned.  Once you receive your Survival Pack, you are set to Plunge however you’d like. 

All Plungers must sign a waiver before Plunging, either online or paper form. Individuals under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian complete their waiver. 

Get creative, this is your year to do it your way!  Take video or photos of your Plunge, add them to your fundraising page and be sure to tag #SONHPlunge on social media.

Remember, safety first!

Cold/freezing/frozen water presents obvious and not-so-obvious dangers and is risky at any depth to people of any age, mobility, or health status. You must exercise caution and personal responsibility in your DIY Plunge activities. SONH cannot identify or control the risk of every DIY Plunge activity and has not endorsed or approved as safe for any particular Plunge activity. 

Be smart, be safe and be careful in whatever form your DIY Plunge takes you, follow applicable water (and freezing water) safety and COVID-19 protocols. Have fun with it, but most importantly, BE SAFE!
