The Friends of Hudson Youth are bringing back The Plunge with an icy cold splash on February 27th! This year will be playing it HUDSON SAFE. Brave hearted plungers will still jump into Oakdale Lake’s frigid water, in staggered shifts, while spectators can enjoy the show via live stream only, starting at 11am.
Funds raised by the Plunge support two fundamental Hudson institutions. They enable the Fire Department Water Rescue & Dive Team to acquire new and improved life saving equipment and enhance the skills of their team through advanced training exercises. And it allows the Youth Department to maintain a a robust Lifeguard Program. The Lifeguard program allows a broad cross section of our community to enjoy free summer time recreation at Oakdale Lake and gives local youth a dynamic workforce development opportunity.

The Friends of Hudson Youth have organized a special Leap Day edition of The Oakdale Plunge in Hudson this Saturday, February 29th.
Join Hudson’s bravest and most deranged as they leap into Oakdale Lake’s icy cold waters to support two hugely important community organizations, the Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue & Dive Team and the Hudson Youth Department.
REGISTER to plunge as either an Individual or a Team, then support our local heroes by raising donations from family, friends and co-workers.
Or DONATE to a brave-hearted plunger or team while you stay warm and dry.
The event kicks off with a kooky Costume Contest at noon on the beachhouse steps, followed immediately by plunging. Come enjoy Morabito’s prize winning chili and lots of frigid fundraisers leaping for two great causes!

The Friends of Hudson Youth proudly announce the 2nd Annual Hudson Polar Plunge! All proceeds directly benefit two incredible community services: the City of Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue & Dive Team and the Hudson Youth Department!
Jump in the icy cold invigorating water. (A plunge is defined as a “quick submersion,” and safety personnel will be onsite). The plunge takes place at Oakdale Lake in Hudson. Mandatory check-in at the Beach House for all registrants starts at 11am, and every plunger will be required to sign a waiver. Plunging begins in small group waves starting at noon.
Please dress for the weather! Participants can leave a bag of clothes/possessions tagged with their name in the Beach House and changing rooms are available post-plunge.
Immediately after the Polar Plunge, warm up at the Great Chili Cook-Off at the Central Fire Station at 77 N. 7th Street. If you’d like to bring a big pot of your prize-winning and soul-satisfying chili to the Cook-Off, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
