Oakdale Plunge 2024

We’ve raised over $16,000, 32% of this year’s goal, and it’s still climbing! So far, we have 62 plungers registered on 12 teams, so it’s bound to be a good show.

Courageous plungers jump into Oakdale Lake’s frigid water on March 2, 2024 for the 7th year 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!

This year,Big Towel Spa is treating the first 12 individuals who raise $1000 to VIP treatment with free access for 1 hour and 45 minutes to the onsite saunas after the plunge! Matt Wood of Metzwood Insurance and Mark Van Deusen of Ginsbergs Foods have been the first to win sauna access, and others may still join them.
