Underachiever Polar Bear Plunge

  • Chesapeake Climate Action Network Richmond Office 33 S 13th St Suite C, 3rd Floor Richmond, VA 23219 USA (map)

Are you tired of Virginia climate underachievers? So are we.

That's why we're participating in this year's Polar Bear Plunge as the "Virginia Resisters." We are going to "go big' and dip our big-toes into the James River.

The Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN's largest fundraiser and our signature event, powering victories to move our region off of fossil fuels and on to clean energy. Each year, activists, friends and families show their commitment to fighting climate change by jumping into an icy river. CCAN traditionally hosts a Polar Bear Plunge every year in Maryland (our 14th year!), but this year we're bringing it to the James River!

Here are the event details:
WHAT: A enthralling "toe-dipping" plunge experience into the James River
WHO: You! And other dedicated climate activists
WHEN: February 9th starting at 11:00 AM
WHERE: We'll start at CCAN's Richmond Office, then take a short walk together to the river. 33 S. 13th St Suite C, 3rd Floor, Richmond Virginia
WHY: To resist Virginia's climate underachievers!
