Polar Plunge & Chili  Cook-Off due Feb. 17

Registration under way

The 5th annual Polar Plunge and Chili Cook-Off will be held on Saturday, February 17, at 10 a.m. at the Urbanna Town Marina on Urbanna Creek. All ages are welcome to the “coolest” event in Urbanna and the brave can test their body’s tolerance to a quick dip in the “chili” water of Urbanna Creek!

All donations from the event will benefit the Middlesex Family YMCA Guardian Program that provides financial assistance for summer camp attendees, and making sure all children in our community have a safe, exciting place to be when school is out.

Participants get an event t-shirt and a hot lunch. The registration fee is $30. Polar Plungers can sign up on Saturday morning after 9 a.m. There will be a heated tent on site. The marina bathroom and showers will be open.

Warm up music will be played by a DJ, and the YMCA staff will serve free hot chocolate and coffee.
