Do you ever wonder how we pull off such a successful event?  Well, it takes a community to run an event the size of Purple Plunge each year!  

Planning for the event begins in December and continues right up to the day of the event.

 

Each year we ask for volunteers and the community comes out in force.  Because the event has grown so much, we need more volunteers than ever.
