Not participating in the Polar Plunge this year? No problem. You can still spread awareness about the event in your community be publishing the details and a registration link.
Either way, online or in-person donations are always appreciated by any non-profit organization, so use Promotion Manager to help spread the word and start out 2022 by going good!
Be sure to make your event public so that it appears as a landing page on your Hub's microsite, along with a share button so people can help spread the word.
