Do you want to raise money for cancer research? And do you like to be naked in a very cold ocean? Then Dip in the Nip is for you.

The Dip in the Nip Foundation is a not-for-profit that organises skinny dips to raise money for cancer charities around Ireland. It also provides Dippers with a unique, life-affirming and fun challenge. And with June fast approaching, it is time to get prepared, because June is Dip in the Nip month, with 5 Dips happening throughout the month of June in 2014.

Started in 2009 by Máire Garvey, the first Dip was a women only event which took place one morning at beautiful Lissadell beach. Máire thought that perhaps 50 women might show up. Instead, 180 women bared all and ran, laughing and screaming, into the North Atlantic. And between them raised €56,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.

Since 2009 the Dips have grown and continue to raise much needed funds for cancer charities. They have had Sir Terry Wogan countdown a Dip live from his radio show in the UK, the have had 17-year-olds and 71-year-olds, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, friends—and everyone in between.

Many people who do the Dip have experienced cancer, their own or that of somebody close.  Some have lost, or are losing loved ones, some Dippers have died since doing their own Dip. Some join in while in treatment. In nothing but a smile, a feather boa, your best earrings, bobble hat or a dab of Chanel No. 5, Dip in the Nip helps put life into perspective—and raises money for charity.

You can choose the dip that is right for you. With Dips for women, Dips for men and Dips for couples, they choose beaches that protect Dippers’ privacy. Dip in the Nip is not is a nudist or naturalist event. It is a charity event that first and foremost is a fundraiser, but also offers something very unique to participants. Most of the Dippers have never skinny-dipped before. But at the end of the day who the hell cares, it is just a body and everyone has one.

So, shed your clothes, earn your skinny-dipping stripes and Dip in the Nip. The countdown is starting, the icy waves beckon. Enjoy the liberation, peace and joy.
