Cold-Stunned Plunge

Cold-Stunned Plunge

November 25, 2023 • 9:30 a.m.

Presented by the Beach Village Merchants

Take a ‘cold-stunned’ plunge into the chilly Atlantic in support of sea turtles on the Georgia coast! Join us for this third 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 the winter months, and your support will assist with cold-stun rehabilitation and recovery. Take the plunge and raise some funds!
