The Chesapeake Climate Action Network is turning 20 in 2022!

THANK YOU PLUNGERS!!! 

On February 12, 2022 we came together to celebrate our work and the climate movement at our annual Polar Bear Plunge to "Keep Winter Cold"

On February 12th hundreds of climate activists across the country came together to take the plunge for our climate. Our annual Polar Bear Plunge to "Keep Winter Cold" is the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's (CCAN) largest fundraising event of the year. Through peer-to-peer fundraising, we're able to raise a large portion of our programs budget for the year to come. We also use the Plunge as an opportunity to bring the climate community together, raise awareness on climate change, and send a clear message to our leaders that climate change must be a priority.

TAKE THE PLUNGE

By taking the Plunge, you're committing to help raise vital funds for the work of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network as we organize to pass climate policies in our region and nationwide. You can also use the Plunge as an opportunity to talk with your peers about climate change -- and of course -- it's FUN!

There are many ways to take the Plunge. You can join us in person at the National Harbor in Maryland on February 12th. Or, you can Plunge virtually from anywhere by soaking in an icy cold bath or kiddie pool, dumping a bucket of ice water over yourself, or even going to a nearby body of water. View our Plunge Program for more details.

Are you up for the Plunge? Here are the steps to prepare!

1. Decide if you'll be taking the Plunge as an individual or as a part of a team! Check out the Teams page for more details.
2. Sign up to Plunge.
3. Customize your Plunge page.
4. Use the Plunger Toolbox to fundraise for your Plunge.
