Plunging is all about fun, adventure and of course, supporting the cause!   In order to keep things interesting leading up to our Plunges, we’re going to give you a weekly “Fun Fact” that has something to do with the Plunges!  This weeks’ “Fun Fact” is not only interesting, but it’s something you can use to recruit other people to Plunge with you! 

Fun Fact # 1

**Avantouinti is the Finnish word for “winter swimming”. It may sound, to many, like masochism taken to ridiculous lengths, but it is becoming increasingly popular in Finland where 10% of the population has tried it and there are more than 80,000 regular winter swimmers who tout the therapeutic benefits of winter swimming.  The typical swimmer is not some grizzled macho-type, but a middle-aged woman with a clerical job.

 Stick around for more “Fun Facts”!  Remember, there are only 25 days left to register for the Thanks”4”Giving Plunge! 

**Info found on the Lake Powell PBP site.
