Crusaders Put Purpose Behind 2018 Polar Bear Plunge

It may be unseasonably warm out, but that won't stop the Cleveland Crusaders from doing their annual Polar Bear Plunge. This year the Cleveland club is putting a purpose behind its Plunge. Along with the quick dip in the lake, participants are asked to participate in a canned food drive to benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

All of Cleveland rugby community is encouraged to head down to Edgewater on New Year's Day with canned food items. After the Plunge, these items will be delivered to the Food Bank and go to help others around the city that don't have regular access to food. The invitation isn't exclusive to those currently active in the game. Family, friends, old boys, supporters, neighbors and civilians who want to contribute are welcome to come and contribute.

Those that want to contribute to the cause but stay dry are welcome to attend and add to the collection effort.

The Crusaders will gather at the Edgewater Beach House on January 1, 2018 at 11:30am, with the Plunge taking place at 12:00pm. One hour later the food collected will be delivered to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
