Valley-Wide seeks charities to benefit from Polar Plunge

Anyone wishing to jump into an ice-cold swimming pool while raising money for charity will have that opportunity at the inaugural Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District Polar Plunge from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, January 11, 2020 at the Diamond Valley Aquatic Center.

During the event, people will have the opportunity to jump or slide into the unheated pool, which is located near Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet.

There will be no charge to enter the pool, but donations will be collected and Valley-Wide is looking for nonprofit organizations to partner with in the event.

Participants and guests will be asked to give to the participating charity of their choice, or give to a general fund. Alternatively, if someone wishes to donate money to an organization if someone specific from that group would jump in, we would notify that organization and let them decide to participate. Each organization will keep all the money donated to them. 

Nonprofit groups or donors interested in participating are asked to contact Craig Shultz at 951-654-1505 or
