Wildwood Vies for Record of World's Largest Ice Bucket Challenge


Come Take the Plunge!

Make this Labor Day weekend a memorable one - come be part of setting two new world's records and help raise funds for ALS!

Mark Sat. August, 30th on your calendar because that's the day Splash Zone Water Park will be hosting a community partner event in an effort to raise funds and awareness of ALS.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

In addition to raising funds and awareness, two world records may be broken - most water used in an ice bucket challenge and most people at one time taking the challenge.

Organizers of the event are hoping for a huge turnout to stand beneath Splash Zone’s 1,000 gallon bucket and get wet to help those who suffer from the debilitating neuromuscular disease.

“Any time you can generate research dollars for a tremendous cause like ALS, it becomes a win/win for all,” said Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr.

“The City of Wildwood encourages everyone to participate in this worthy cause.”

Check in for the plunge begins at 11 a.m. Aug. 30  with the big bucket tipping over at high noon. A minimum $10 donation is required and on-line registration is mandatory. There will be no on-site registration the day of the plunge and the registration site will close 12 hours prior to the event.

All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and bragging rights to say "I took the plunge!"
