Registration for the 2014 Laurel Highlands Plunge has officially closed. However, you can register the day of the event, Saturday, February 8th between 9am – 12:45pm.
Plungers who are currently registered:
- You may turn in all cash or check donations the day of the plunge! Please bring all donations with you to the Registration Tent on Saturday, Feb 8th.
- Plunges who do not have any additional donations to turn in should still visit the Registration Tent to check-in, receive your wristband (ticket to plunge) and event t-shirt.
- Too Chicken?? Please stop by the Registration Tent to check-in, pick-up your event t-shirt, turn in any donations and receive directions over where to meet for the Chicken Dance!
Day of Plungers:
- ALL day of Plungers will be assigned to a “Day of” Plunge Wave. Due to limited space in each wave, we are unable to guarantee a space in a requested plunge wave (to plunge with friends or family who are pre-registered). Available spots in pre-registered waves will be passed out on a first come, first serve basis. We appreciate your understanding.
If you are in the quest to land as one of the top three Battle of the Badge Teams, Individual Fundraiser, Cool Schools or Top Team titles – Please have ALL of your donations entered online, either in the form of an online credit card donation OR a pending donation by NOON on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7th!
Again, the Battle of the Badge, Team, Cool Schools and Individual fundraiser titles will be based off of the online total reflecting online at NOON on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7th.
