Cold Turkey Plunge: November 26th

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - October 6th, 2016 -  

Waterville Valley, NH --On Saturday November 26th Captain Tom Turkey will lead his Fearless Fowl Feathered Friends as they Plunge, once again, into the icy waters of Corcoran Pond in Waterville Valley to raise funds to support the Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports Programs for children and adults with cognitive and physical disabilities. 

Over the last three years the Plunge has raised more than $75,000 for the volunteer-based program. The funds were used to purchase $30,000 of specialized adaptive athletic equipment, host disabled veterans and their families for two weekends of winter sports, allow families with autistic children the chance to enjoy a weekend respite in the White Mountains, and provide ski lessons and equipment for more then 1,000 athletes with cognitive and physical challenges.

All Plungers are asked to raise a minimum of $50 in donations. They will be rewarded with a WVAS Empowered Bracelet, an official Long Sleeve Plunge T-shirt and a tasty cold turkey sandwich courtesy of Chef Sean Stout of the Coyote Grille. Additional Premium Incentives will be awarded for reaching various fund raising benchmarks and prizes will be presented to Teams and Individuals in a variety of categories including Best Costume (Costumes Optional).

This year Captain Tom is introducing the V.I.P (Very Important Plunger) Program. V.I.P.’s are asked to make an individual donation of $200 or more. In thanks for their generosity they will receive the standard Plunger Reward Package, have premium on beach seating in a heated tent, be treated to hot beverages (Irish Coffee included) and, best of all, a designated Plunger will take the dip on their behalf.

The beach will be rocking with the annual Polar Pool Party. The popular Hot Tub will be back. The Town Square will be decorated and the local Inns and merchants will be offering all sorts of Holiday Specials. Ski Waterville Valley in the morning. Join the Plunge at 1:00. Then linger in the square to greet Santa when he arrives by dog sled at 3:00 p.m. and stay for the Holiday Fireworks over Corcoran Pond in the evening.
