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!  

What is the 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.  This year the theme is "Pirates of the Polar Plunge".

Plunge Perks

Have a blast! All registered participants who raise the minimum $125 will earn a Polar Plunge long sleeve t-shirt!  Additional incentive rewards can be earned at the $300, $500, $1,000 and $2,500 fundraising levels.  

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