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 of the Mesquite Community Center Pool, along with other brave souls with warm hearts. In fact, if you don't want to Feel the Thrill of the Chill just register as a chicken. You'll be excused from Plunging but still enjoy all the festivities and incentive rewards that our Plungers receive.
Raise the minimum of $125 and you’ll receive an official Feel the Thrill of the Chill long sleeve Polar Plunge t-shirt and a BBQ lunch of hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings. While enjoing lunch, take in the post plunge festivities including awards presentations for tops fundraisers and best costumes. Watch members of Law Enforcement and the Fire Department race blocks of ice down the pool for bragging rights as the "coolest" team in town. Guests can join you for the BBQ lunch for $5 per person.
If you really want to make a "splashy" entrance, for an additional $10 donation, you can slip into the poo;l from the slide.
And let's not forget the costumes! Everyone is encouraged to dress in one. Are they mandatory? Heck no, but they sure are a huge part of the fun. Where else will you get to wear your favorite Halloween costume more than once a year?
CHECK OUT THE COOL STUFF YOU CAN EARN!
The more you raise, the more we want to thank you!

The money raised will help us continue to provide sports training and competition opportunities to the Special Olympics athletes currently served, right in your own community, while enabling us to reach out to other individuals not yet engaged in our life-changing programs. Athletes involved in Special Olympics are empowered with self-confidence and self-esteem that carries over into their everyday lives, right in your local communities. They are your family, neighbors, coworkers, friends and your classmates.
