Polar Plunge December 8, 2019

Plunger Information

Hello Polar Plungers!

Can you believe we are just days away from Plunging into Lake Chauncy!  The time is finally here.

Thank you all for plunging and raising money to help those in need who live and/or work in Westboro. In Your Shoes truly appreciates it.

Registration will open at 12:00.  When you arrive, please go to the registration desk - bring or fill out a registration/waiver form.  This is important as you can't plunge without signing the waiver. Put your name on a green slip for the raffle drawings during the event.  Give that back to the registration desk. Then proceed to the t-shirt table for your t-shirt.  

There are changing rooms for the Men (Papa Bears) and Women (Mama Bears) for you to change into and/or out of your costume.  Please remember to bring a towel and some warm dry clothes after your plunge.  There will be a bonfire to warm up with after. 

We shall be starting our event with the National Anthem sung by high school senior Neha Prasad, followed by a warm up Zumba, Martha Convers.  Right after that our emcee will announce the team to go first so listen for your team or individual name.   We shall be plunging every 10 minutes from there - starting around 12:30. Warm refreshments including sandwiches all supplied by Wegmans.  

When your team or individual is called please check-in and line up at the check in shoot.  Make sure you have your picture taken with the Polar Bear!  After plunging in the brisk waters, please check out and give your number to the check-out plungers desk.

As stated above, there will be a "Mama Bear" and "Papa Bear" changing room (bathrooms in the summer) to the far right of the lake passed the playground.  Porta Pottis will located near the red building to the right of the emcee.

Prizes will be handed out at the end of the plunge for the individual and team that raised the most money, most spirited team or individual as well as best costume individual or team.  There will also be small prizes handed out during the event - make sure you write your name down on the green piece of paper at registration.

Thank you for “taking the Plunge” with In Your Shoes along with support from Westborough Connects.
