The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is the first grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Our mission is to build a diverse movement powerful enough to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using our proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, regions nationwide, and countries around the world.
The "Polar Bear Plunge" is CCAN's largest annual fundraising event. Each January, hundreds of passionate climate activists run, walk or skip into the icy cold Potomac River to raise money for CCAN!
Want to make an offline donation? No problem! You can send us a check made out to "CCAN" with your Plunger's name on the memo line to the following address:
