Get ready for another great event!  The 15th Annual Valentine Plunge – Is Going VIRTUAL From February 1 -14th, 2021 – we couldn’t do what we do without YOU – registration is opening soon!

In 2021 each plunger and/or team will be able to choose their own location, date and time to satisfy their plunge commitment.

In 14 years the Valentine’s Plunge has raised  $3.4 million dollars to support the Quality of Life of those suffering with ALS and although we wish to respect the current health crisis and the limitations in which it creates for a large gathering such as this, we must not allow that to hinder these continuing efforts.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and support as we adjust to our new realities!

We raised over $330,000 in 2020 – and we can’t thank you enough for being there and making it happen – let’s beat that number this year!
