Polar Plunge and Winter Festival

February 1, 2016




Take the Polar Plunge for Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury!

On Saturday, February 20, Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury will hold its first Polar Plunge & Winter Festival at the Westhaven Residents’ Club. This fun, family-friendly event will include children’s activities, a snow machine, community/vendor booths, and food trucks and will culminate with warm-hearted volunteers taking a frosty dip into Westhaven’s outdoor pool to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing mission.

Who can take the polar plunge?
All ages welcome! Anyone and everyone who wants to take the plunge is invited, as well as those wanting to cheer on the participants.

Where is the plunge?
Westhaven Residents’ Club – 401 Cheltenham Ave, Franklin, TN

When is the event?
Feb. 20, 2016 from 11am to 1pm

How much does it cost to plunge?
Registration is $10 per participant. In addition, we are asking each plunge participant to commit to raising at least $100 through donations from family, friends, and well-wishers. But feel free to set your own goal! That means with 150 participants we can reach our $15,000 goal.

How will I raise that $100?
After you have registered and set your goal, we’ll send you sample letters, emails, and tools that you use to engage your friends, family, and colleagues in your fundraising. Each participant can set up their own fundraising page through our Polar Plunge First Giving page: https://www.firstgiving.com/13234/polar-plunge-for-habitat

What do I wear?
Feel free to wear whatever you like! Costumes welcome as long as they do not leave debris in the pool.

With a minimum of $100 in donations, you will receive an inaugural Plunge t-shirt, treats and warm drinks, and much-deserved bragging rights!
