2022: Back, and better than ever

It’s getting cooler outside — perfect for a Plunge!

This year’s event will be held both in-person at Cowans Gap State Park, as well as remotely for those of you who prefer a bucket to a lake. So if you aren’t in the area on that weekend, you still have the option to join us in a meaningful way!

As you know, all profits go to help combat childhood cancer through Penn State’s THON. Alumni and students from Penn State Mont Alto collaborate to bring you this opportunity to do good.

The 2022 Mont Alto Plunge team invites you to jump in!

Here’s how to become a participant

  • Register
  • You can do this on your own, or create a team.
  • It’s only $10.00 to register as a participant.
  • Share your personal page link with all your social groups. Do you know anyone who will pay to see you jump in a lake or dump ice water on your head? We bet you do. They can pay up when they visit your page.

Lake option

Join us on December 4, 2022 at Cowans Gap State Park, PA. Participants will run into the water in waves to keep everyone safe. We’ll have hot chocolate waiting for you.

Personal option

On December 2, 3, or 4, post a video of you saying “I’m doing the Mont Alto Personal Plunge to fight childhood cancer!” and then tipping a bucket of ice water over yourself.

Make your vid public and tag us… We’re on Facebook and Twitter @montaltoplunge

Send us your video, too! We’ll compile a video montage from the videos that are sent over. (Go to https://wetransfer.com/, upload your video, enter montalto.plunge@gmail.com to send it — this is free!) Follow us on our social channels for updates. You’re our favorite kind of hero. We can’t wait to see how COOL you get.

Who can participate?

EVERYONE over the age of 12! Whether you’re a student or alum of Penn State Mont Alto, an employee or a neighbor, a local business or social group, a community member or a community organization, we invite everyone to sign up today and start raising money to help benefit families dealing with childhood cancer diagnoses. And if you can’t see yourself immersing, you can skip the dip but still make a difference!

We suggest setting up a team at work for some healthy fundraising competition. You know, #ForTheKids.

How do I just donate or sponsor?

If you can’t see yourself immersing, you can skip the dip AND still make a difference! Just click the donate button on our homepage to join our fight against childhood cancer. Follow the same path to find a participant or team to sponsor, if you’d like to help make the fundraising interesting for everyone who is jumping in!

WE ARE deeply grateful for the good work of everyone who joins us in this endeavor. Thank you for being a part of it!
