PLUNGE with us on February 7th, 2015 beginning at 10am and support Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and the Athens Rotary Club as we team up to purchase a new van. Each week DAV transports wounded vets to Augusta, GA, the closest VA hospital to the Athens area. DAV is in dire need for a new van, and with your help, Rotary will help purchase the van. So join us in our Polar Bear Plunge, or support our cause by making a donation.
It is when you and your crazy friends jump into frigid water (Lake Chapman at Sandy Creek Park) in the middle of the winter. Check out video from last year's plunge supporting Mercy at our 2014 Facebook event page:
So grab a friend, coworker, family member or go at it alone — register today and you'll have bragging rights for years to come. Not just anyone can say they jumped into Lake Chapman in the dead of winter, right?
Three ways to plunge...
For you hardy souls, jump all in! for those of you more sensible people, take the Chicken dip. Just stick your toe in, then head for the fire and s'mores (also for people under 18 years old).
And for group plungers, or groups that want to raise money in support of a single plunger, you can register as a Team. Just click "Register to Participate," sign up, and build your personalized or Team webpage.
All donations are tax deductible!!!
