Plunge For Adventure

Thanks to our friends at The Hub Studio in Florence, cycling
coach and AOA Board Member James Fitzgerald
will be
leading a spinning fundraiser: "Cycle for Adventure."

Plunge for Adventure

If we raise $15,000 by 11am on Saturday, December 14 we will take the icy plunge into Upper Highland Lake at the DAR State Forest in Goshen, MA!

We need YOUR support to make this a success!

  • Use the "Join Us" button above to sign up to join us!
  • Use the "Nominate a Plunger!" button to tell us who YOU want to see take the plunge!
  • Come and watch on December 14!
  • DONATE!  Instead of a traditional year-end fundraising appeal, we are taking the plunge!  Your contribution will support our efforts to break down barriers to outdoor recreation for people of all ages with disabilities, for seniors, and for veterans.
