IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The safety of our communities, participants and volunteers are our number one priority. With that said, this year the Madison Polar Plunge will be going cashless and paperless.

What does this mean?

  • In order to receive incentives, fundraising must be completed by February 15; any dollars raised after this date will not be eligible for additional incentives
  • We are strongly encouraging that all donations are made online in an effort to reduce cash handling at check-in
  • Please be sure you electronically sign the COVID form before your Plunge!
  • These improved efficiencies at check-in will mean reduced wait times and limit exposure to other participants and volunteers creating a COVID-friendly environment for all!
