Hudson Polar Plunge, Feb 23

The Friends of Hudson Youth proudly announce the 2nd Annual Hudson Polar Plunge! All proceeds directly benefit two incredible community services: the City of Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue & Dive Team and the Hudson Youth Department!

Jump in the icy cold invigorating water. (A plunge is defined as a “quick submersion,” and safety personnel will be onsite). The plunge takes place at Oakdale Lake in Hudson. Mandatory check-in at the Beach House for all registrants starts at 11am, and every plunger will be required to sign a waiver. Plunging begins in small group waves starting at noon.

Please dress for the weather! Participants can leave a bag of clothes/possessions tagged with their name in the Beach House and changing rooms are available post-plunge.

Immediately after the Polar Plunge, warm up at the Great Chili Cook-Off at the Central Fire Station at 77 N. 7th Street. If you’d like to bring a big pot of your prize-winning and soul-satisfying chili to the Cook-Off, email for details.
