December 7, 2013 at Aquatic Park in San Francisco

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 – or participate in all three in this year’s new “Santa Triathlon!” Choose from these three athletic feats, all of which will take place in and around Aquatic Park:

Santa Walk and Fun Run: 8:30am
$25 per person
(Fee for wish children and families is waived)
It’s a festive, family-friendly 5k walk and fun-run – holiday attire encouraged!  Participants will take to the streets of San Francisco to get some exercise in support of wishes!  This is a certified course, but no official timing is provided.  Registration opens at 7:30am.

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!

Are you a senior or C-level manager? Learn more about how to take the Executive Challenge to Plunge in the Bay!

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!

The Goal: This year’s goal is to grant 357 wishes in the Bay Area – and we hope that 10 of them will be made possible through Brave the Bay. Our average wish cost is $7,500 – and with your help we’ll raise $75,000 by December 7th, making wish magic come true for 10 local children! - See more at: http://www.bravethebay.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1080623#sthash.1OPJPpEm.dpuf

    I was looking at the information on the Make A Wish site about this event. If we each raise $100 (outside of the entry fee), we get a long sleeved Santa t-shirt. There are more prizes the more you raise, but I would really like the t-shirt.

  • Mariela

    Have any of you registered for this event? If so, could you please let me know if there's a special code or team name I should be aware of prior to registration? Don't want to mess this up lol. It would be a shame if I join the cops or firefighters team by mistake ;) lol

  • Mariela

    I'm in for the three events. How do I purchase the ticket? Do we have a team name or something like that?

    September 30, 2013

    • Leslie A.

      Yes, there is a team registration. So, if you have any name suggestions, that would be good. I knew you'd be in Mariela. ;)
