Boys and Girls come out to play…

The mood sure was festive in Serebryany Bor!  While we were doing the plunge to raise funds in support of some of Moscow’s many homeless, you can be sure that the event was also intended to be fun for all.   Plungers, volunteers and spectators all had a wonderful time, getting into the spirit by dressing up and having a laugh.

The event was organised by Auski, which is a social group for Australians and New Zealanders living in Moscow.  As you can see from the following images, people of all nationalities took part, and it was a great day to be part of such an international community.

This lovely Russian maiden was dressed the part, and was obviously experienced in the ways of the Polar Bear - several lengths of the pool and always with a smile.

Slippers were critical for the tender toes of the uninitiated!
Blankets were donated for the use of the plungers.  After the day, they were donated to the homeless.

Costumes ranged from headwear to a full bodysuit - that must have been a bugger to get off afterwards!!

Looking back on these images, and thinking about the day – I kind of wish I’d had the guts to do it.  Tell you what, if we are still here next year…..

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?  I’d love to hear from you!  CSPxx
