2022 South Lake Tahoe Plunge

Join us on April 23, 2022

Sorry, registrations are currently closed.


2022 Theme: Traveling the World for Special Olympics!


April 23, 2022 @ Round Hill Pines Beach Resort

Event Check-In Begins at 9 a.m.
(See complete schedule below)

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.  The funds you raise will ensure that Special Olympics athletes have their vital sports and health programs during these challenging times.

There are a few ways to register: you can register as a Plunger and make a splash or register as a Chicken and participate while staying dry and cheer on your teammates from the sidelines. You'll make your choice when you register.

Plunge Details

We look forward to everyone enjoying the 2022 Plunge in the safest environment possible. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation through the Winter and early Spring, Special Olympics Nevada reserves the right to transition the Plunge at Round Hills Pine Beach & Marina into a completely virtual event should conditions not allow for in-person gatherings. All registration fees, and donations, from the in-person event (scheduled for April 23, 2022) will be moved to the virtual event. All transactions are non-refundable.
