The San Francisco Plunge is Joining Forces with Santa Cruz!

August 28, 2021 @ Rio Del Mar Beach!

Our goal is to engage and educate the community about Special Olympics athletes and how they foster inclusion by participating in the Plunge.  

We encourage everyone to bring at least one family member, co-worker, or friend to register and Plunge with you. Better yet, be a Team Captain and invite everyone you know to be a part of this crazy event. 

There are two registration options; you can register as a Plunger and feel the thrill and make a splash or as a Towel Holder, and participate while staying dry and cheer on your teammates from the sidelines. You'll make your choice when you register. 

All participants are asked to raise a minimum of $125 and, in return, will receive a really cool Plunge t-shirt. The more you raise, the more you can earn.  The funds you raise will ensure that Special Olympics athletes have their vital sports and health programs during these challenging times.


Costumes are encouraged, dress to impress!

All participants under the age of 18 must bring a hard copy of the waiver signed by a legal guardian.  Click here to print out the waiver.


We look forward to everyone enjoying the 2021 Plunge in the safest environment possible. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation through the Winter and early Spring, Special Olympics Northern California reserves the right to transition the San Francisco/Bay Area Plunge into a completely virtual event should conditions not allow for in-person gatherings. All registration fees, and donations, from the in-person event will be moved to the virtual event. All transactions are non-refundable.
