Where will I take the plunge?

A virtual plunge has endless possibilities! Getting soaked outside will give you the true "Polar Plunge" effect, but an indoor plunge is also an option. Here are a few ideas, but feel free to take the plunge in your own unique way!

  • Super Soaker Plunge
    • Fill up super soakers with cold water and have your family soak you - outside of course.
  • Water Balloons
    • Fill up as many water balloons as you can and have your family throw them at you!
  • Buckets of Ice Water
    • Have your family pour buckets of ice water over you.
  • Sprinkler Run
    • Get out your sprinkler and turn it on for a chilling good time.
  • Inflatable Pool 
    • Take a dip in your inflatable pool filled with ice water!
  • Ice Shower
    • Turn your shower to the coldest setting and hop in (clothing required)!
  • Truck Bed Pool
    • Line your truck bed with a tarp and fill it up with fresh cold water from the hose!
  • Creek Walk
    • Have a creek or stream near you? Walk through the chilly waters for your plunge!

Want a t-shirt without recording or taking the plunge?
