2018 Polar Bear Plunge Fundraiser
What is it?
It's a Fort Wayne tradition, so you know we love it! On new year's day of every year hundreds of people gather at the Johnny Appleseed Park boat ramp and take a dip into the freezing waters of the St. Joseph River. Last year, we had over 20 players take a swim to start the year off, this year we plan on 50!
How can you participate?
1. Take the plunge with us on Jan 1 at 2pm at the Johnny Appleseed Park boat ramp. (bring old shoes)
2. Watch live on Facebook! www.facebook.com/fortwaynerugby
3. Sponsor a FW Rugby Polar Bear! Our guys are selling their articles of clothing for donations to get down to the bear (yeah we said it) necessitates for the plunge. We are raising money for the 2018 playoff season and also a portion of each donation goes to the Turnstone Wheelchair Rugby Team!
