Due to the difficult winter weather we’ve experienced this past month, we will be extending The 15th Annual VIRTUAL Valentine Plunge season through the end of March 2021!

The website will remain open to register as a PLUNGER or to DONATE to support our PALS. Many thanks to all who have already plunged or donated this year! With much gratitude, the Valentine Plunge Committee and our PALS!

In 2021 each plunger and/or team will be able to choose their own location, date, and time to satisfy their plunge commitment in a safe and responsible way in order to continue to help us support our local PALS.

Once your plunge is complete, post your video or pictures to your team page or on Instagram #valentineplunge or #valentineplunge2021…

And then view your pictures/videos here!

In the past 14 years, the Valentine Plunge has raised $3.4 million dollars to support the Quality of Life of those suffering with ALS!! During these difficult times, we certainly wish to respect the current health crisis and the limitations in which it creates for a large gatherings, however, we must not allow that to hinder these continuing efforts. So a VIRTUAL PLUNGE is what we will do! Thank you in advance for your understanding and support as we adjust to our new realities! We couldn’t do what we do without YOU!!

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!


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 2021!

Thank you again to all of our supporters!
