Santa Cruz Polar Plunge

March 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Well first of all, the Plunge is NOT a swim. The Plunge is a crazy fundraising event where people raise a minimum of $100 for the opportunity to run into and out of chilly waters of the Santa Cruz Beach, along with other brave souls with warm hearts. In fact, if you don’t want to Feel the BRRR, 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 $100 and you’ll receive an official Feel the BRRR long sleeve Polar Plunge t-shirt, be treated to a great lunch, with a no host bar to enjoy with your fellow water warriors. Back by popular demand – to get you psyched up and ready for the thrill of chill, we’ll have our pre-plunge festivities including frozen t-shirt contest, snowball eating contest with a few other tricks up our sleeve. We’ll also present awards to top individual and team fundraisers as well as best costumes at the post plunge party.
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?
The money raised will help us continue to provide sports training and competition opportunities to the 19,940 Special Olympics athletes we currently serve, while enabling us to reach out to other individuals not yet engaged in our life-changing programs. who enjoy our program. 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.
So grab your family, friends and co-workers and let’s Feel the BRRR! If you have any questions please email [email protected]
