In the past 15 years, the Valentine Plunge has raised over $3.6 million dollars to support the Quality of Life of those suffering with ALS!! Last year was a very trying time for all, but we managed to think outside the box and hold a virtual plunge raising over $214,000 with your help!!! We couldn’t do what we do without YOU!!

We raised over $214,000 in 2021 – Thank you for your support, understanding, and participation in our first virtual plunge ever last year! We look forward to seeing you all in Manasquan on February 12, 2022!!


About the Valentine Plunge

The plunge is an exciting fundraising event where participants, called Plungers, collect donations for ALS patients in exchange for plunging into the icy Atlantic Ocean.

Get a team together – register as an individual – be a spectator cheering on your plungers at their chosen locations this year – make a donation – be part of an amazing fundraising event! We’d like to give many, many thanks to all who have participated in the past years and now! Let’s make history this February 2022!

Thank you again to all of our supporters!
