The Human Resources of the Hamptons’ annual Polar Bear Plunge for Hunger dives into the ocean at Coopers Beach in Southampton Village on Saturday, December 12.
There will be a walk at 9 a.m., and the plunge is at 10 a.m. Walkers should arrive by 8:30 a.m. and plungers should arrive by 9:30 a.m. to register.
Each participant must donate or raise at least $25. Proceeds will benefit the food pantry at Human Resources of the Hamptons. Participants will each receive a Polar Bear Plunge hat.
Costumes are encouraged.
While plungers are encouraged to do their own fundraising, a number of individuals are already sponsored by their companies or anonymous donors. These include volunteer firefighters, ambulance volunteers, Southampton elected officials, Southampton Village employees, Wright & Co. Construction employees and families, local school district employees and Masonic Old Town Lodge 908 members.
Plungers may download registration and donor forms at hrhamptons.org.
