Polar Plunge

The Polar Plunge has been the Health Trust’s iconic event for more than 20 years. Mulberry Grove, Kaitoke, and Okiwi primary schools support this event and children and adults alike over the years have plunged for ‘Health’ in June most years. There is a specific piece of equipment the Health Team have prioritised to be funded by the Plunge.
