Brainfreeze is worth freezing for. We promise! It’s energizing, exciting, and Instagrammable from tide in to tide out. People of all ages gather in subzero temperatures, warm up with a little light yoga and mindfulness, and then voluntarily jump in freezing water. If you’re looking to #freezing4reason for mental health education and awareness, this is a perfect day to leap in.  All donations will help train, educate, and empower community members as they revolutionize how we view mental health.  Every person, young or old, should feel comfortable talking about mental health, and we can make this a reality together.

Registration for the 2nd Annual Brainfreeze Polar Plunge is open. Each polar bear participant is asked to fundraise a minimum of $100.  100% of those funds support Navigate Hope, Inc’s mental health programs.
