Dipping from a Distance

“Wear a Tutu in 22”

WCCC’s 2022 annual Polar Dip to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House of Bangor and Sarah’s House of Maine will be a virtual event. Like last year, participates will be “dipping from a distance”.

Complete the Polar Dip at home! That could mean you, “Wear a Tutu in 22” and pour a bucket of ice water over your head, jump into an ice bath, or into a snowbank, you decide. The WCCC Student Senate came up with this alternative way to continue to show our support for the Ronald McDonald House of Bangor and Sarah’s House of Holden, Maine.

The first Polar Bear Dip was organized over 20 years ago, as something of a dare, but the event soon embraced the important cause of fundraising for the vital services these two organizations provide. Both locations offer individuals – and, at times, their families a place to stay the night when they are receiving medical treatments in the Bangor area. In the last decade, the WCCC Polar Bear Dip has raised $138,720 dollars for the Ronald McDonald House and Sarah’s House. 100 percent of all funds raised go directly to these vital organizations.

It’s easy to participate and donate, go to WCCC’s Student Senate POLAR DIP Facebook page. There you will find the 2022 Pledge Sheet, and secure PayPal link to make your donation or you can visit www.wccc.me.edu/polar-dip-2022/ .

Don’t forget to send us your photos and videos of your “dipping from a distance” polar dip by April 20, 2022. Please send directly to Karen Gookin, WCCC Student Senate Advisor kgookin@wccc.me.edu. WCCC’s Student Senate will gather all media and create a short video to honor this year’s event. The video will be posted to WCCC’s Facebook page and WCCC website later in May. If you would like to see last year’s video, please visit the Student Senate Polar Dip Facebook page.

Please make sure you send in your name and address along with your donation or pledge. Pay or fundraise the minimum amount of $75 or more to receive a WCCC 2022 Polar Dip long sleeve shirt. Once all funds and pledges have been calculated, the Student Senate will mail your 2022 Polar Dip shirt to you.
