20th Annual Polar Bear Plunge
Take the Plunge!
The Humane Society of Washington County invites you to join us on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at Greenbrier State Park in Boonsboro, MD for our 20th Annual Polar Bear Plunge. Become a member of this time honored club by taking the plunge to save animals at HSWC. All proceeds benefit the animals at HSWC!
We need you to help save lives! You can register to plunge individually, start or join a team, set a goal, and begin raising money in support of the animals.
Polar Bear Plunge registration is $25 in advance ($30 day of the plunge), and everyone who registers by December 15th will receive an official Polar Bear Plunge long-sleeved t-shirt.
Check-in and day of registration will be open from 10:30am to 11:45am. Save time the day of the plunge and fill out your liability form in advance! Prizes for best costumes, most money raised, most team members, and most creative virtual plunge will be awarded at 11:45am, and the plunge is at 12:00 noon.
Interested in supporting the animals at HSWC but unable to attend this year's plunge in person? Become a virtual plunger! Virtual plungers who register by December 15th will receive an official Polar Bear Plunge long sleeved t-shirt and access to helpful fundraising tools. Submit your virtual plunge video to HSWC via Facebook Messenger or to email@example.com by January 9th for your chance to win Most Creative Virtual Plunge!
If you’re not plunging but still want to help, you can also make a donation toward your favorite plunger by searching for them on our fundraising site.
