FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Jan 31, 2014
Plunge: 2pm Registration: 12pm
Camp Sunshine is pleased to announce the 2014 Virginia Polar Dip. We believe that together, we can send many more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to our one-of-a kind retreat in Maine. To date the Virginia Polar Dip has raised over $305,000! This year, our goal is to raise $100,000 which will allow 50 families from the Mid-Atlantic (PA-VA-MD-DC-DE-NC-WV) area to come to Camp Sunshine.
Any plunger raising $100 or more will receive a highly-coveted, commemorative, long-sleeve “I DID IT” event shirt!
For those individuals not quite ready to take the full plunge, we do offer the "chicken dip"!
Why a Virginia based event for a camp in Maine?
The Virginia Polar Dip was started by the Toth family in 2008 after a long history with Camp Sunshine. They first attended Camp Sunshine as a participating family in 1996 when their daughter Jennifer was a cancer patient at age 3, and they have returned as volunteers every summer since. After Jennifer participated in a Camp Sunshine Polar Dip in New Jersey, her family decided to bring the event to Virginia in order to help more local families.
