Polar Rotary Plunge
Plunge for your favorite non-profit charity
The Rotary Club of Lake Arrowhead is hosting the TWELFTH annual PolaRotary Bear Plunge at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa Beach in February 2020!
Styled after fundraising “walk-a-thons”, volunteers dive into the freezing cold waters of Lake Arrowhead to raise money for the Lake Arrowhead Rotary Foundation and their favorite charitable organization.
Those who jump split the money they collect between the Lake Arrowhead Rotary Foundation and another charity of their choice.
More than 60 organizations have been supported over the last ten years. (See RECAP above for list)
Over the past years, jumpers have included State Assemblymen, County Supervisors, Mountain Citizens Of The Year, the Mountains Community Hospital CEO, school board members, school teachers and principals, school board superintendent, Rotary presidents, Rotary district governors, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, and the list goes on.
Since 2009, 554 jumpers raised $261,000 for 62 different charities.
And 45 percent of the jumpers were women.
There are only three rules with which the jumpers must comply:
- No wet suits
- No nudity
- Complete submersion (no time limit)
Event chair Dr. Patrick Rains hopes to again smash all records this year and encourages all leaders involved with nonprofit organizations to consider the PolaRotary Bear Plunge as a fundraising opportunity.
