Fundraising Tips

The number one reason people donate to American Cancer Society events is because someone asked them to.


The American Cancer Society has recently started working on the Boulder Polar Plunge and we are excited to bring back this great tradition on January 7, 2017. 


The event registration website is open at  Funds raised through the event will support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission to eliminate cancer and help people stay well, get well, find cures, and fight back against the disease.

 Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.

History of the Polar Plunge:

The Boulder "Polar Plunge" was first held on New Year's Day in 1982, and hosts hundreds of spectators bearing witness to hundreds of brave individuals as they "take the plunge" into the freezing waters of the Boulder Reservoir to ring in the new year!
