After months of deliberations, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the South Lake Tahoe Polar Plunge that was scheduled to take place on September 26th at Zephyr Cove. In Nevada, current mass gathering restrictions prohibits groups larger than 50 people. Due to this mandate, we are unable to provide our plungers with an event experience that has the same entertainment and engagement value you’ve enjoyed in the past. We look forward to relaunching the South Lake Tahoe Polar Plunge in 2021. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Special Olympics staff at Plunge@sonv.org.
Please know that the funds you have raised will help us continue to change the lives of our Special Olympics athletes. Our athletes constantly amaze us with their resilience and positive outlook, even during these very challenging times. Covid-19 has forced us to change the programming and activities we currently offer, but not our commitment to keep them engaged.
If you raised $125 or more, your long sleeve Polar Plunge t-shirt will be mailed to you. If you earned additional incentives and have not already claimed them, you will receive an email next week letting you know how to do so.
