Registration for the 2014 event will open in Fall 2014 – stay tuned!

Brave the Bay is an active, festive holiday-themed event perfect for San Franciscans of any age! You choose the athletic event that most appeals to you – walk, Plunge in the Bay, or the Cable Car Pull, or participate in all three in this year’s new “Santa Triathlon!”

Santa Plunge in the Bay: 10:30am
$25 per person
Find out just exactly how cold the San Francisco Bay is! Whether you take the slow and steady wade-in approach or get it over with quickly by jumping in, your supporters and spectators will be impressed by your fortitude. Towels, hot drinks and showers are provided. Participants are encouraged to reach out to family, friends and colleagues to support their Plunge, and in turn can earn awesome Make-A-Wish fundraising incentive prizes!

Santa Cable Car Pull: 11:00am-1:00pm
$150 per team of six
If you really want to prove yourself, put your strength to the test against the SFPD in the Santa Pull beginning at 11am. Gather a team of six to participate! You’ll be paired against another team to see who can pull a cable car the fastest over a distance of 200 feet. Participants are encouraged to reach out to family, friends and colleagues to support their Pull, and in turn can earn awesome Make-A-Wish fundraising incentive prizes!

Santa Triathlon: 8:30-1:00pm
$60 per person
Want to take part in all three? Register for the fun and festive Santa Triathlon at a discounted rate of $60, and walk, plunge and pull your way to glory! All Triathlon participants receive a commemorative medal celebrating their success!

Cops & Coffee: 9:00am-3:00pm
Not feeling sporty? Enjoy the day’s athletic events from the sidelines, then head to the Buena Vista Café (featuring world-famous Irish coffee and so much more!) for a relaxing meal as part of the Cops & Coffee Program from 9am-3pm. Your server will be assisted by one of San Francisco’s finest – a wonderful SFPD officer working hard that day to make sure your meal arrives hot…and accepting your generous tip – 100% of which benefits Make-A-Wish!
Check out what the Santa Plunge in the Bay looks like!
