Executive Challenge

The Brave the Bay Executive Challenge is geared toward senior and C-level management who are invited to loosen their ties, toss their high heels, and take a brisk plunge into the San Francisco Bay…IF their supporters ante up! They’ll encourage their company, business associates, friends and family to donate to their plunge. If their network raises the cost of one wish—$7,500—it’s into the bay they go!
  • How: To participate, executives must pledge to raise a minimum of $7,500. This can be achieved through a combination of pledges, a corporate gift, an individual contribution, or a special event. Make-A-Wish will provide you with a customized personal fundraising page that links easily to social media, making fundraising easier than ever. Registration is free, though all participants are encouraged to make a self-donation to kick off their fundraising efforts.
  • Perks: Following the plunge, executives and their guests are invited to head to the Plunge VIP area for hot drinks, towels, hand warmers and high fives. Executives who raise $7,500+ will earn a commemorative robe (exclusively for Executive Plungers!) along with other fundraising prizes.
