Event Info

Registration and Waiver

We encourage all plungers to Pre-Register online as this will save you time at the registration tent on the day of the event and allow you to solicit donations easier.  However if you'd like you can still print out a registration form.  Plungers are able to solicit donations any way that they'd like, we encourage you setting up contests with your teammates.  Sponsors are able to make donations through the online portal or through cash/check.  If you're receiving a donation by cash/check you can issue a receipt to your sponsor.

If you plan on plunging with us we ask that you read the following Waiver and Release.  All Plungers will need to sign a waiver before taking "The Plunge".  Waivers will be available at the event, however, to save time you can print out, sign and bring the waiver with you.

I agree to abide by any decision of an event official relative to my ability to complete this event safely and I further agree that event officials or volunteers may authorize necessary emergency treatment for me. I further assume any and all other risks associated with participating in this event including, but not limited to, illness, traveling to and from the event, falls, contact with spectators or other participants, the effects of the weather (including temperature extremes and humidity) and the surface condition of the roads and sidewalks, all such risks being understood and appreciated by me.
