On Saturday, November 25th 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.
New this year, The Valley Inn is offering a 33% lodging discount to any plunger or Cold Turkey supporter. Log in to http://www.valleyinn.com/deals-packages/ to book and learn more.
Over the past four years the Plunge has raised almost $100,000 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).
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.
