The Polar Plunge returns to Richmond to kick-off the 2021-2022 Polar Plunge Season! Join us at Pocahontas State Park, where we’ll be strutting our stuff and taking a chilly strut down the boat ramp –all for a great cause. Bring your friends and family out for a day of fun, music and food. Don't forget, we'll crown the best-dressed plunger, top fundraiser and VIP team.
