Plunge for Special Olympics

Hop, skip, run or jump into chilly waters for our amazing Special Olympics athletes.  

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.  

Plunge Perks

Have a blast! All registered participants who raise or pay the minimum $125 will receive a Polar Plunge long-sleeve T-shirt and are invited to the Pre-Splash Bash featuring breakfast burritos and other treats to provide some insulation before the icy Plunge.  Cool School participants must raise or pay a minimum of $50 in order to participate but must raise a minimum of $125 to earn a Polar Plunge T-shirt. Festivities will include awards for best costumes and top fundraisers.  Additional incentive rewards can be earned so the more you raise the more you can receive (and the more our athletes benefit)!  Polar Plunge T-shirts are distributed at the Plunge, any other incentives you earn will be mailed to you.  Watch for an email after the Plunge to claim your rewards!

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