8) What should I wear to the jump?
We love it when jumpers really get into the theme of the event. With this year's theme
being "We the North", feel free to dress up in any appropriate costuming, jersey's etc..
Just make sure that it's ok that it gets soaking wet (and pretty darn cold)!
It should also be noted that wet suits, dry suits and nude plunging is strictly prohibited.
So, stick to the theme and you'll be fine.
9) Is there anything else I need to bring for when I jump?
Be sure to bring a blanket or towel to the event so you'll be able to dry off after your jump.
A change of clothes is also recommended - and I'm writing from experience!
The weather might be a little rough, so be sure to dress appropriately.
10) Where does my sponsorship money go?
Plungers will raise pledges for the charitable organization of their choice.
50% of the monies will be forwarded to the charity by the BEL Rotary Club.
The remaining 50% will be used by BEL Rotary to support Rotary service and charitable projects.
All pledge monies will be collected and given to BEL Rotary officials upon registration at
