Cold-Stunned Plunge on Jekyll Island

Take a ‘cold-stunned’ plunge into the chilly Atlantic in support of sea turtles on the Georgia coast! Join us for this second annual fun-and-frigid fundraising event for the Jekyll Island Authority’s Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Many sea turtles get caught in hypothermic water temperatures during winter, and your support will assist with cold-stun rehabilitation and recovery. Take the plunge and raise some funds!
