The 5th Annual Oakdale Plunge

The Plunge is back with an icy cold splash on March 5th! This year we'll once again be playing it HUDSON SAFE. Brave hearted plungers will still jump into Oakdale Lake's frigid water, in staggered shifts, starting at Noon. All spectators will be required to mask, distance and remain outside for everyone's safety. Or,  you can enjoy the show via livestream in the cozy comfort of your living room. Links to the livestream will be posted closer to the event. See more details about our safety plan on the FAQ page.

Donations support two hugely important Hudson institutions that promote safe recreation in and around the water! Proceeds are split evenly between the Hudson Youth Department and the Hudson Fire Department's Water Rescue and Dive Team. The Dive Team will use its share to upgrade their aging equipment, keeping their all-volunteer team and our entire community safer. The Youth Department's share will go towards Lifeguard Training and expanded hours for free summer fun on the beach! 

Here's how you can support these two great organizations: 

REGISTER today, as an individual or a team, and start raising funds.

DONATE to a courageous plunger or team while you stay warm and dry. 

SPONSOR the event.

Last year, plungers raised over $35,000. More than a dozen teams jumped in the freezing cold lake, including top-level Avalanche Sponsors Metzwood Insurance and Columbia Memorial Health

We're confident we can top that and break $40,000 in 2022! Plungers, and supporters, we can do this together!
