Plunge...like nobody's watching!

The 6th Annual Oakdale Plunge is back with an icy cold splash on SaturdayMarch 4th at noon!

Courageous plungers jump into Oakdale Lake's frigid water to support two hugely important Hudson institutions that promote safe recreation in and around the water! Proceeds are split evenly between the Hudson Youth Department Waterfront Program and the Hudson Fire Department's Water Rescue and Dive Team. The Dive Team uses its share to upgrade aging equipment, and continually train their all-volunteer team, keeping our entire community safer. The Youth Department's share goes towards Lifeguard Training and expanded hours for free summer fun on the beach! Learn more about our local heroes HERE.

There are three ways to support this wacky community event:

REGISTER today to take the plunge on March 4th, and start fundraising with your friends, family and co-workers!

DONATE now to a brave plunger or team to support these two great causes!

Or SPONSOR the whole event! Contact peter@hudsonyouth.org for more information on sponsorship opportunities.

Outrageous Costumes are strongly encouraged for all our intrepid plungers and once again we'll have a costume contest and prizes for the lucky winners. We will announce the winners at the end of the the event.

Spectators are welcome and encouraged at the beach this year, however only plungers may use the Beach House to ensure everyone's safety. If you can't make it in person we'll share a video of the event soon afterwards.

See more details about the event on the FAQ page. 

Last year, plungers raised over $40,000. More than a dozen teams jumped in the freezing cold lake.  Can we top that and break $50,000 in 2023?!

Questions? Contact peter@hudsonyouth.org or 917-748-4662. 

Watch the 2022 Plunge!
