Hey Virginia Polar Dip participants - there's still a chance to win a $100 gift card for fundraising!

📢 Attention All Virtual Virginia & Worldwide Polar Dippers & 5K Dashers! 📢

As an added bonus, every dipper who individually raises or has raised $250 (before 5pm EST on 2/18/2021) will be entered into a drawing to win their choice of a $100 Camp Sunshine online store gift card, $100 Tropical Smoothie Café gift card, $100 Texas Roadhouse gift card, $100 Dunkin’ Donuts Gift Card or $100 L.L. Bean gift card!

We will be doing TWO drawings: One for Virginia Polar Dip participants and one for Worldwide Polar Dip participants with one lucky winner from each. *For teams that have collectively raised more than $250: Team captains will be entered into the drawing. The winner from each Dip & Dash will be contacted Friday 2/19/2021!

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in or donated to the Virtual Virginia Polar Dip & Dash! Another thank you to our event sponsors: Ourisman Chantilly Toyota, Salon Khouri, and Loebig Wellness. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake and the families that they serve. We can't thank you all enough for your dedication to this cause, coming up with your own creative ways of "FreezinForAReason". To date we have raised just over $20K! Since we are virtual it's not too late to still participate if you want, or to still solicit or make donations. There are some great fundraising incentives to be had! We certainly hope to see everyone back in person at Lake Anne Plaza in 2022!

How cold is to cold to go for a dip?

Lake Anne Plaza hosted the 2020 Virginia Polar Dip where participants paid to jump in the lake. In years past the lake has been frozen the ice had to be cut to even get to the water!

This event benefits Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake, Freezin For A Reason, an amazing organization helping children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

See ya next year!
