About CCAN

The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is the first grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Their mission is to build a diverse movement powerful enough to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using their proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, regions nationwide, and countries around the world.

CCAN envisions an equitable energy future where truly clean sources of power — efficiency, solar and wind — sustain every aspect of our lives, and dirty fossil fuels are phased out; where communities now sacrificed to the fossil fuel industry – from South Baltimore to Southwest Virginia and beyond – have won the freedom to decide where their energy comes from and how it’s used; and where we’ve kept the increase in the global average temperature below 1.5 degrees Celsius, protecting the most vulnerable communities in our region and the world from the worst impacts of climate change.

The annual Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN's largest annual fundraising event.  Every winter, hundreds of passionate climate freeze for our climate.

 

We're taking the Plunge for our climate

On February 12th we're taking the Polar Bear Plunge to Keep Winter Cold!

We're plunging in support of the work of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN). CCAN is the first grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Their mission is to build a diverse movement powerful enough to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using their proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, regions nationwide, and countries around the world. 

Just like a charity fun run, Plungers take pledges from their friends and family to support CCAN’s vital climate work. And guess what? This year is CCAN's 20th anniversary, so we're going bigger and bolder!

You can take the Plunge with us! Let us know if you want to join our team.
