Put MVP on ICE! Support the CCAN Polar Bear Plunge @ National Harbor!

by admin on February 3, 2023

Hopefully, this will be the last we will hear about the MVP!

Take the Polar Bear Plunge on Sat. Feb. 11th. SIGN UP NOW!

From the Invitation of Mike Tidwell, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, February 1, 2023

Fighting dangerous fossil fuel projects like the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is tough work, I’ll admit it. This year we’re fighting harder than ever to make sure fossil fuels stay in the ground and the MVP never gets built. But we can’t do it alone.

That’s where you come in. Spread the word, join the movement to move from fossil fuels to a sustainable future by joining our CCAN Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday February 11 (just one week away)!

Like I said, saving the climate is tough work. That’s why it’s important to make a little room for joy. Warm towels! Free pizza!

Yes, you read that right. Joy! The Polar Bear Plunge is FUN. You almost don’t feel the shock of cold when you run into the icy waters. That’s because you’re surrounded by so many loving activists who are all in this together. Then you get to join your friends afterwards for free pizza. So sign up now!

We have big plans in 2023. In addition to fighting dangerous pipelines in Virginia, we’re working to electrify buildings in Maryland and push for rapid implementation of the historic clean-energy initiatives in the federal Inflation Reduction Act. These are just a few of the ways that we’ll fight climate change this year with the funds raised by the Polar Bear Plunge.

Our Polar Bear Plunge Sponsors know how important this event is to CCAN’s work. I’d like to thank Neighborhood Sun, Green 2.0, MOM’s Organic Market, US Wind, and Orsted for taking the Plunge with us in 2023 and supporting our upcoming campaigns.

Our annual CCAN Polar Bear Plunge is only one week away! SIGN UP NOW to take a winter swim with us on Saturday February 11. The Plunge brings in one third of our funds raised from individuals. The more we raise, the more flexibility and power we have to win our campaigns!

See you there, Mike Tidwell, Executive Director,
Chesapeake Climate Action Network
