Hardy Beavercreek folk to take the Polar Plunge

March 2, 2014 by  

All those brave souls from Beavercreek who haven’t had enough cold yet this winter should brace themselves for the upcoming rescheduled 4th Annual Caesar’s Creek Polar Plunge.

This event is just one of the nine plunges taking place throughout the state to raise funds for Ohio’s Special Olympics. It offers a chance to win prizes for the best costumes, awards for plunging, and a pass to the after-plunge party.

Gift cards will be awarded in the costume contest followed by the Plunge—participants should wear wind pants, a blanket, robe or warm jacket and water shoes or old tennis shoes for this one—they can be redeemed for long sleeved t-shirts, beach towels, hooded sweatshirts, light down jackets and Teton 3-in-one jackets. All awards will have the Polar Plunge Logo.

The after-plunge party will be free for Plunge participants ($10 for everyone else). Perhaps thanks to the help of a local print company, ‘Too Chicken to Plunge’ T-shirts are available, selling for $30, and can be delivered or mailed.

The Polar Plunge will be held Saturday, March 8, at Caesar’s Creek State Park, Waynesville. Preregistration will be the night before from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Cadillac Jack’s, 9400 Springboro Pike, or just before the event. In order to Plunge, each participant must register, sign a waiver, and be at least eight years old.
