February 1 – February 26

Due to the global pandemic, we've gone virtual! Burrr-tual (Virtual) plungers are asked to pop a cold water balloon over their head or get someone to pop it for them.  This will be an online event open to all. Join us for our Virtual Plunge Celebration on Saturday, February 27th. Join us the day of the event by clicking here at 7 p.m.

You can take the Polar Pop in 3 easy steps!
