WHAT: Join us for our first Polar Plunge at UMBC - jump in and jump out! Participants will receive swim caps and breakfast. This event is open to everyone as a kickoff to our 2024 fundraising season.

WHEN: March 10, 2024 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

9:00 AM - 9:45 AM: Registration

10:00 AM: PLUNGE!

Additional waves of plungers will continue until everyone has had a chance to get in the pool.

All swimmers and volunteers must complete the waiver found here and bring to the event check-in. If you are under 18, please bring the waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

FUNDRAISING: Participants are encouraged, but not required, to donate $15 upon registering to commemorate the 15th Anniversary of the Baltimore Swim. We hope participants will join us for one of our pool swims or open water swim later in the year!
