Welcome to the Polar Plunge for BEL Rotary Club

Welcome to the BEL Rotary 42nd Annual Polar Plunge Donation Site 

We're Back! Come join us on February 6th as we take the plunge in support of local charities and the BEL Rotary club

The theme is “Back to the Plunge” and the goal is to have fun in the face of the pandemic and raise money for your favorite charity and the work of BEL Rotary.  As in other years it will be a 50/50 split.






We thank you for your past participation.  Thanks to you we have been able to support our community.  Since March our club has purchased PPEs for front line workers, provided meals to the staff and residence of the Youth Emergency Shelter, treats for residents and workers in long term care facilities, supported the Bridgenorth and Lakefield Food Banks, provided the makings of Thanksgiving dinner to many of our community members and provided the “gift of Christmas” to local families through the Adopt a Family Program. 

This is all possible thanks to the support of our community.

Over the past 41 years we have raised hundreds of thosands of dollars for for charities and local organizations. Please join us and support your community.
