February 29, 2020 @ Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort

The theme is "Leaping into the NEW Plunge!"

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 the minimum $125 will receive a Polar Plunge long sleeve t-shirt, lunch and all the Post Plunge festivities.  Guests can join you for the BBQ lunch which consists of  burgers, fries and salad with cookes and brownies for desert for $25 a person.  A vegatarian option is also available.   Click here to purchase tickets.  

For our participants, additional incentive rewards can be earned at the $300, $500, $1,000 and $2,500 fundraising levels.  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!
