Welcome to this year’s Polar Plunge. This bone-chilling event invites participants, also known as plungers, to collect pledges from friends and family for plunging into the icy waters of Cunningham Lake, located at 8660 Lake Cunningham Road in Omaha.
A plunger can be anyone with enough nerve and heart, willing to dip more than their toes in some freezing water for a good cause. Minimum donations start at $50. Plungers can participate on an individual basis or be part of a team. And if you’re taking the plunge, just know that this event is all about having fun while doing good. In other words, dress up in a costume or come up with a theme for your team, the wackier the better.
Check-in begins at 9:30 a.m. Teams and individual plunges will start at 11:00 a.m. A post-plunge party will follow where lunch will be provided for plungers and incentives and prizes will be given out. Incentives will be awarded at many levels of fundraising: $75, $250, $500, $1,000 & $3,000.
