The Plunge, Freezin’ for a Reason!
On “Super Bowl” Saturday, February 1, Haywood Waterways Association and the Town of Canton are hosting the “8th Annual Plunge Benefit-t-t-ting Kids in the Creek & Environmental Education.” The Plunge is a community event, bringing together citizens, schools, public officials, businesses, churches, and many others to support kids.
The event will be from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at the Champion Credit Union Aquatics Center (77 Penland St., Canton, NC). On-site registration begins at 10 am. All plungers receive free swag and lunch. The depth of plunge is a personal choice, from a dip of the toe to a full-body immersion. Prizes are awarded for best costumes and top fundraisers.
The cost is $25 or FREE by raising sponsorships ($10 for under age 18). Register and donate online at www.crowdrise.com/8thannualhwaplunge. "Join the Team" and Crowdrise will create your own page linked to the fundraiser, then raise sponsorships by sending the link to all your family, friends, coworkers, and everyone else and go for one of the top fundraiser prizes. 100% of the proceeds benefit the organization’s Kids in the Creek and environmental education programs.
Off-line, contact Haywood Waterways for a paper copy of the "Sponsorship, Donation, and Registration Packet" (828-476-4667, email@example.com). Or sign up the day of the event!
Bonfires will be raging to help folks warm up as well as indoor changing and eating facilities. Since it is a winter Plunge, the event will happen rain or shine!
Eric Romaniszyn, Haywood Waterways’ Executive Director, said, “The Plunge is a great fundraiser for our education programs, as well as a great friend-raiser and tool for raising awareness of clean water.”
