Sonoma County Polar Plunge route

This quick dip will steal your breath away. Get suited and booted in your best costumes and head over to Ives Park, Sonoma County where you'll be joined by hundreds of people raising money for this phenomenal cause.

If you want to get involved but don't want to take the plunge then simply sign up for the 'Chicken' ticket. This will give you access to all the fun and festivities but saves the flipping freezing feeling afterward.
