In support of the Y’s Annual Campaign, Let’s Jump In!

The 2017 Polar Plunge will be held on February 18th at 10AM in Urbanna, Virginia, at the Waterfront. Following the Great Plunge, the Chili Cook Off will start immediately “up the hill” in the parking lot beside Something Different. There will be a DJ, craft beer and wine and of course — CHILI! The event will end at 4:00 with final judging. Heated tent and burn barrels will be onsite to keep everyone toasty warm!

All ages are welcome to test their body’s tolerance to the cold water of Urbanna Creek! Special prizes awarded for costume, group costumes and the Something Different Award!
