Plunge with a Purpose

Hop, skip, run or jump into chilly waters for our amazing Special Olympics athletes.  Whether you're a brave soul or a chicken, we invite you to join us as we Plunge with a Purpose - to encourage inclusion and change the way that people think about and treat individuals with intellectual disabilities.  

Funds raised will help us continue to create change in our communities and enhance the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities through sports.  Join the fun and make a difference!  

This year, the Plunge theme is Wild Thing.  That can mean whatever you want it to mean so have fun with it!  

What is the Polar Plunge

Well first of all, the Plunge is NOT a swim. The Plunge is a crazy fundraising event where people raise a minimum of $125 for the opportunity to run into and out of chilly waters along with other brave souls with warm hearts.  If you can't "bear" the thought of chilly water then just register as a chicken.  You’ll be excused from Plunging but still enjoy all the festivities and incentive rewards that our Plungers receive.  

Plunge Perks

Have a blast!  All registered participants who raise the minimum $125 are invited to the Post-Splash Bash featuring a complimentary hot buffet lunch, awards, no-host bar and other treats to warm you up after your brisk dip.  

Costumes are strongly encouraged, that's half of the fun.   Dress to Impress!
