Our Plunge was amazing! Not too late to Donate. Money raised will continue to benefit Special Olympics.



Help more than 24,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities succeed in life through sports. Special Olympics Northern California & Nevada provides free year-round training and competitions, schools programs and critical health resources while working to create a more inclusive world for people of all abilities.

Polar Plunge

Dive, dip or dunk!  The Plunge is not a swim but instead challenges brave participants to take a chilly splash into icy waters.  A fundraising minimum of $125 per person is required.  Water not your thing? Register as a “chicken” and enjoy the festivities while staying dry.  This year's theme is St. Patrick's Day.

Plunge Perks

All registered Plungers who raise the minimum $125 are invited to the Post-Splash Bash featuring a complimentary hot buffet lunch, no-host bar and other treats to warm you up after your brisk dip.  Plunge festivities will include a DJ, awards,  incentives and more.  Guest lunch tickets are $26 and must be purchased in advance.  Purchase guest lunch tickets.  

Costumes are strongly encouraged.   Dress to Impress!
